Assessment of % Body Fat
Whole body MRI spectroscopy has been used to assess the body fat of mice.
This provides a quick and accurate determination of the percentage body fat.
|1H NMR spectra of wild type||1H NMR spectra of obese mice|
The percentage of body fat is determined from the area under the curve of the water resonance (AUCH2O) and the area under the curve of the lipid resonace (AUClipid)
