Abstract

Excess visceral adiposity is associated with increased gastrointestinal cancer risk. Evidence suggests that the systemic inflammation and dysmetabolism observed in visceral obesity underpins this association. Along with magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography is a gold standard for abdominal fat quantification and is routinely available for gastrointestinal cancer research.
