Özet

AIMS: We aimed to identify by computed tomography (CT) the best suited of three anthropometric indices that reflect the visceral adipose tissue ( VAT), and to discern the relationship between VAT and certain atherogenic risk factors and coronary heart disease (CHD) diagnosis in a population sample which had a high (34%) prevalence of the metabolic syndrome ( MS).
