This work explores the role of body composition and its relationship with the development of type 2 diabetes in White European and Black African men. An investigation of differences in body composition between these two groups was performed via automated image segmentation and analysis of Dixon MR images. Our initial results suggest visceral adipose tissue may not be a principal determinant in the development of type 2 diabetes in Black African men as it is with White European men.
