Excess body adiposity results in obesity and metabolic dysfunction. Identification and characterization of various white, brown and browning adipose tissues and the possibility of reversing pre-diabetic pathology is of current clinical interest for combating obesity and diabetes. In this study, we have identified and characterized various brown and white fat depots by whole body imaging in rats using a Siemens 3T Skyra system.
