Proton density fat fraction (PDFF) mapping has been emerging as important metabolic phenotyping parameter in obesity enabling spatially-resolved fat quantification in multiple organs. PDFF of adipose tissue has also recently gained significant attention due to the interest in developing biomarkers of brown fat which is assumed to be present in the adult supraclavicular fossa. However, it remains unknown how adipose tissue PDFF relates to other fat depots and anthropometric parameters. The present study aims to investigate the relationship of the supraclavicular and gluteal fat PDFF with SAT and VAT volumes and anthropometric obesity markers.
