Semiautomatic tissue separation with mobile whole body MRI of a 32-year-old male finisher of the TEFR09. A: Right row (before start): green: total lean tissue, red: somatic adipose soft tissue, yellow: visceral adipose tissue, blue: adipose bone marrow. Left row (after 4,120 km): green: total lean tissue, red: somatic adipose tissue (= somatic adipose soft tissue + adipose bone marrow), yellow: visceral adipose tissue. (selected slices: I: ankles, II: middle of lower legs, III: knees, IV: middle of upper legs, V: hip/pelvis, VI: umbilical level, VII: upper abdomen, VIII: heart/mediastinum, IX: shoulder girth, X: elbows). B: Right row (before start): green: somatic lean tissue, red: somatic adipose tissue, grey: total visceral volume. Left row (after 4,120 km): green: total lean tissue, red: somatic adipose tissue (= somatic adipose soft tissue + adipose bone marrow), yellow: visceral adipose tissue, blue: intraluminal nutrition fat in intestinal tract. (selected slices: V: hip/pelvis, VI: umbilical level, VII: upper abdomen, VIII: heart/mediastinum). C: Loss of total lean and total adipose tissue during the TEFR09.
