Özet

Research question: What are the potential differences between lean women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in fat content in liver, vertebrae, paraspinal muscles, pancreas, subcutaneous (SCAT) and visceral adipose tissue (VAT)? Magnetic resonance imaging proton density fat fraction (PDFF) was used to establish these differences. This is a novel, non-invasive, operator-independent method with comparable diagnostic sensitivity and specificity to histologic examination for fatty liver disease, and strong correlation with muscle strength in neuromuscular studies.
