syngo.via VB50 Anatomy Visualizer - Visceral Fat Measurement (MM Reading) e-Clip

Introduction | Freehand MPR tool | Threshold filtering | Results handling. 

Upper body obesity is strongly associated with metabolic complications due to the correlation between an increase of the visceral fat and its adverse health consequences. In addition to that, it may increase the risk for cardiovascular disease, therefore obtaining information about abdominal fat quantification derived from CT scans can play an increasingly important role in many clinical scenarios, the visceral fat measurement can be obtained with a standard non contrast CT scan. With soft tissue kernel, an thick slices. This Seacliff will show you how to perform the visceral fat measurement using the threshold. Another segmentation tools in the anatomy visualizer available on our routine reading workflow. Select the art segment and activate the Anatomy Visualizer tool. Add a new segmentation object and rename it visceral fat. Navigate to the umbilical region height or the slice you consider appropriate. Select the Murfree hand tool and draw a contour following the inner limits of the abdominal muscles in cage. Please make sure not to include subcutaneous adipose tissue. If you are satisfied with the contour select add region. Furthermore, you can contour the subcutaneous fat with a similar procedure. Please add a new object an perform their freehand contour for that issue of interest, you can use the feature enable automatic contour, which assists with the contouring by finding similar Hounsfield values relative to the click position. Include the whole slice in this segmentation object. Click on the combined tool that allows you to subtract, join or overlap segmentation objects. Use the subtraction option an select the segmentation object. Visceral fat from the dropdown menu. Select the threshold tool. And click on fat which has a predefined threshold of minus 40 to minus 200 Hounsfield units. You can modify this threshold if required. Tissue between these boundaries is filtered in the segmentation layer and it is visible in the NPR views. If you have contoured the subcutaneous fat on the previous step simply selected from the segmentation objects and ally the fat threshold to this segmentation layer as well. To display the measurement for each segmentation object, please click on the show or hide measurement icon. When you select a ruler icon to display the measurement, the segmented region changes to a dark pink solid color, allowing you to better visualize the segmented areas that are included in the quantifications. Keep in mind that the measurement value is provided in the unit of the volume. If the unit of area is required, you may divide it by the slice thickness or increment of the original 2D series that you used to obtain the segmentations. You can create a finding of each measurement. The results images are automatically transferred to your configured archive when you close the case using save and send button.
