Background and aim: Obesity is an increasing bothersome problem worldwide. Accurate diagnosis of abdominal obesity would result in better therapeutic approaches to decrease the burden of problem across the societies. The purpose in this study was to determine the correlation between abdominal visceral fat measured by ultrasound with waist circumference at different locations in the adult population.
Materials and methods: In this cross-sectional survey, 155 sequential adults aging from 20 to 70 years in Tehran were enrolled and the correlation between abdominal visceral fat measured by ultrasound with waist circumference at different locations in them was assessed.
Results: The results in this study demonstrated no significant correlation between abdominal visceral fat and waist circumference at different locations (r=0.6). The frequency rate of metabolic syndrome was 22.9%, 21.8%, and 25.7% in Wc1, Wc2, and Wc3, respectively without significant difference (P > 0.05).
Conclusion: There is no correlation between abdominal visceral fat and waist circumference at different locations and measurements may be done in each point.
