“…The images analysis was performed with the software DicomWorks v1.3.5 (17) , by means of automatic calculation of the area in cm² of intra-abdominal and intrap-eritoneal fat tissue, always in the same axial plane. The abdominal circumference (total area including visceral and subcutaneous fat tissues) and the intraperitoneal (visceral) area were delineated with the cursor aiming at obtaining the area of intra-abdominal and intraperitoneal fat tissue (18) (Figures 1 and 2).…”
