Quantification of adipose tissue distribution within the abdomen is fundamental for investigations in obesity and diabetes. Distribution of fat within the body, and its accumulation in the abdominal cavity, exert different physiologic effects based on their anatomical location. Calorie-restriction and exercise interventions improve obesity risk factors. Fat accumulation and mobilization can vary depending on the type and quality of fat in different locations. We have investigated the quantitative changes in fat volumes at different positions in the abdomen in diet induced obese rats.
