Comparison of epicardial, abdominal and regional fat compartments in response to weight loss.

Nutr Metab Cardiovasc Dis 2009 Dec;19(11):760-6.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

Echocardiographic measurement of epicardial fat (EF) seems to be a reliable and diagnostic marker of visceral adipose tissue (VAT). However, the weight loss-induced changes in EF have not been compared with those in VAT or the truncal depot. In this study, we aimed to compare the weight loss-induced changes in EF, VAT and other regional fat compartments in obese men.
