The abdominal fat thickness (AFT) was defined as the distance between the posterior aspect of the linea alba and the anterior wall of the aorta (Figure 2). We used an Aplio XG ultrasound device (SSAA; Toshiba, Tokyo, Japan) with a MHz convex transducer for AFT measurement and a 12 MHz linear transducer for AWT measurement. Ultrasound is becoming widely utilized modality for measuring the visceral adiposity. Aim: To determine the usefulness of ultrasonographic measurements in the estimation of regional adiposity and to compare them with anthropometric measurements and to correlate ultrasonographic measurements of regional adiposity and metabolic syndrome.

  Ultrasonographic measurements of visceral fat were correlated with cardiovascular risk factors, but this association was also demonstrable with AC measurements. Our results suggest that the measurement of visceral fat by ultrasound is unnecessary for the diagnosis of cardiovascular risk in well-nourished or obese adolescents. The highest variability was observed for ultrasonographic assessment of facial fat (median inter-observer coefficient of variation, %). Using the clinical diagnosis of lipodystrophy as reference, the best accuracy was observed for ultrasounddetermined intrabdominal fat, waist-to-hip ratio and subcutaneous crural fat measured by.

(MRI) can be used to measure adipose tissue volume; however, MRI is resource and time consuming, while CT is limited by radiation exposure,13 Ultrasonogra-phy is gaining momentum as a readily available, simple, inexpensive and radiation-free modality. There are cur-rently several techniques of ultrasonographic SAT mea-.   In adults, WHR has been the most extensively used indirect measure of visceral fat. 47, 48 In actually, WC and abdominal sagittal diameter show a better correlation with visceral fat as determined.

Ultrasonography (US) is a simple and reliable method for measuring both subcutaneous and visceral fat showing a strong correlation with both adiposities measured with computed tomography scan Different techniques are presented by different authors, and no standard method of measurement is still proposed.

The subjects were instructed to lie in the magnet in a supine position with arms extended above the head. A breath-hold sequence (≈22 s per acquisition) was used to minimize the effects of respiratory motion on the images.

All images were acquired on a   Free Online Library: Novel and Simple Ultrasonographic Methods for Estimating the Abdominal Visceral Fat Area.(Research Article, Report) by "International Journal of Endocrinology"; Health, general Adipose tissue Measurement Physiological aspects Adipose tissues Type 2 diabetes Risk factors Ultrasound imaging Usage.

The optimal cutoff points for predicting GDM were visceral fat thickness mm [area under curve (AUC) =p = ], WC cm (AUC =p = ), and BMI (AUC =p = ).Cited by:   We performed ultrasound evaluation to measure abdominal obesity, including visceral fat thickness (VFT) and subcutaneous fat thickness (SFT).

Ultrasonography was performed with a high-resolution ultrasonographic system (SA ; Medison, Seoul, Korea).Cited by: 9. ceral fat [8–10]. Several methods for estimation of the visceral fat area (VFA) have been reported.

Until now, computed tomogra-phy (CT) is considered as the gold standard method for the measurement of VFA [11–14], although it is expensive and is associated with the risk of radiation exposure at the level of about 10–20mSv per scan.

Pages We and others (1–9) have shown that the accumulation of visceral fat is associated with multiple risk factor syndrome more closely than with the BMI itself or the amount of subcutaneous fat.

In these studies, computed tomography (CT) scan at the umbilical level (10) was used for the assessment of visceral fat area (VFA).

However, the method is not cost-effective and/or. Visceral fat is the kind of fat you do not want in your torso, and here’s why (Picture: Getty) the only way to find out whether you’ve got too much visceral fat going on is a tape measure. In women, 35 inches or more is a sign of visceral fat.

In men, it’s 40 inches. Warning: This is a crude tool, especially if you’re a very big person. And if you’re of Asian descent, the benchmark Missing: Ultrasonographic.

A MHz curved array probe was placed next to the umbilicus along the xypho-umbilical line to determine visceral fat thickness (VFT), which was measured as the distance between the internal surface of the abdominal recti and the anterior wall of the aorta.

This study was conducted to measure the cut-off value of the visceral fat area that increases the risk of obesity-related diseases in Korean children and adolescents, and to calculate the cut-off value of the waist-to-height ratio that can be easily applied to clinical practice using the cut-off value of the visceral fat area.

A value of cm for visceral fat US-determined diagnosed visceral obesity with a specificity of %, a sensitivity of %, and a diagnostic concordance of 74% with CT. To assess the usefulness of ultrasonographic measurement for visceral fat, we investigated the correlation between the values measured with CT and with ultrasonography and the correlation between several ultrasonographic values and the risk factors of CVD.

This study particularly focused on whether the visceral fat thickness (VFT) measured by. Request PDF | OnEsra Bahar Gur and others published Ultrasonographic visceral fat thickness measurement may be a good scan test for prediction of gestational diabetes mellitus.

We measured visceral fat thickness by high-resolutional ultrasonography and insulin resistance by Kitt. Half of the cohort had a fatty liver (%). High visceral fat thickness had the highest odds ratio for developing fatty liver in both sexes (odds ratio [S.D]: [], p. VISCERAL fat loss: Visceral fat is a common problem in those leading an unhealthy lifestyle.

Many are unaware how much visceral fat they are actually holding onto as the fat lies deep under the Missing: Ultrasonographic. Visceral adiposity seems to be the major contributor to a fatty liver in the insulin-resistant state.

In fact, epidemiological evidence suggests that visceral adiposity is more associated with a fatty liver than the body mass. Direct assessment of hepatic fat obtained by biopsy is considered the gold standard, but it is a very invasive method. In this study, we measured abdominal visceral thickness and thigh muscle thickness to evaluate visceral fat and thigh muscle distribution using ultrasonography and used an abdominal visceral to thigh muscle thickness ratio (AVTMR) as an index for assessing the disproportion between visceral fat and thigh muscle mass.

Several recently conducted studies suggested that measuring visceral fat thickness by ultrasonography is an effective screening tool for metabolic syndrome and estimation of the risk for development of NAFLD [15,16,17].Ultrasonographic measures of abdominal fat were associated with anthropometric measurements, glucose level, insulin level, and the Homeostasis Model Assessment of Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR), with the exception that glucose level was .Assessment of visceral fat amount was performed by using a MHz ultrasound.

Visceral fat thickness (VFT) was defined by the distance between the anterior wall of aorta and the internal face of the rectoabdominalis muscle. Visceral obesity was defined as VFT > mm in men and > mm in women (the median value for each gender).
