Katzmarzyk PT, Bray GA, Greenway FL, Johnson WD, Newton RL, Jr., Ravussin E, Ryan DH, Smith SR, Bouchard C. Racial differences in abdominal depot-specific adiposity in white and African American adults. Am J Clin Nutr. January 2010;91(1):7-15.
How Analyze was Used
“Image data were transferred to PBRC, and commercially available software (Analyze; Analyze Direct…) was used to electronically measure areas of adipose tissue by selecting regions of interest defined by attenuation values (−30 to −190 HU for adipose tissue). Abdominal VAT [visceral adipose tissue] and SAT [subcutaneous adipose tissue] cross-sectional areas (cm2) were measured as previously described [Smith et al. 2001].”
