Imaging technologies, i.e. magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computer tomography (CT) and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), are precise and accurate techniques used to study lean body mass and adipose tissue distribution. CT and MRI can also be used to assess metabolically active components of fat-free mass (FFM). (Throughout this article, metabolic activity is defined with respect to oxidative metabolism.) To date a total of 116 in vivo measurements of organ masses (OM), in combination… CONTINUE READING
