The multi-peak structure of the fat 1H MR Spectrum allows non-invasive estimation of triglyceride composition in adipose tissue in vivo. The study compares variability in triglyceride composition of three different abdominal adipose tissue depots. We see statistically different triglyceride compositions in the three abdominal adipose tissue depots.
