Visceral fat accumulation is a risk factor for cardiometabolic diseases. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) provided the most accurate techniques of abdominal fat assessment, but these methods are very expensive. The aim of this study was to examine and compare the predictive ability of simple anthropometric parameters for visceral fat area (VFA) among adult women in different age and obesity status groups. The sample consisted of 133 adult women (aged 18–76 years). All subjects underwent …
