This study presented using MRI to quantify muscle and fat volumes in thigh for sarcopenic and sarcopenic obese (SO) populations. The correlation between different thigh components and patients’ physical performances was also assessed. Results show that MRI is a promising tool for early detection of sarcopenia and SO. This may translate to use in clinical trials and in clinical practice. MRI measurement of inter-muscular fat volume is a valuable component in thigh to monitor patients’ physical performances.
