We successfully quantified fatty acid composition in the liver, subcutaneous, and visceral fat tissue using modified Dixon technique with flexible six echo times and seven-peak spectral model with lipid components. Our results suggested that fatty acid composition of depot fat was varied among the patients with different metabolic status. We also demonstrated the possible relationship of unsaturated fatty acid in depot fat to cholesterol level and insulin tolerance.
