Background: 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 of the present study was to determine the correlation between
abdominal visceral fat measured using ultrasound with waist circumference at different locations in
adult population.
Materials and methods: In the present cross-sectional survey, 155 sequential adults, aged 20 to 70
years, in Tehran were enrolled and the correlation between abdominal visceral fat, measured using
ultrasound, and waist circumference was assessed at different locations.
Results: The results of the current study demonstrated no significant correlation between abdominal
visceral fat and waist circumference at different locations (r=0.6). The frequency rates of metabolic
syndrome were %21.8 ,%22.9, and %25.7 in Wc1, Wc2, and Wc3, respectively, without significant
differences (P > 0.05).
Conclusion: There is no correlation between abdominal visceral fat and waist circumference at
different locations, and measurement of each point may be performed.
