Semiautomatic separation of somatic and visceral volume (right row) and intraluminal nutrition fat (left row): selected slices from whole body MRI of a 32-year-old male finisher of TEFR09. V: hip/pelvis, VI: umbilical level, VII: upper abdomen, VIII: heart/mediastinum. Left row: before start (t0), green: SLT, red: TSAT, grey: TVV. Right row: after 4,120 km of running (t5), green: TLT, red: SAT (=SAST+ABM), yellow: VAT, blue: INF. ABM, adipose bone marrow; INF, intraluminal nutrition fat; MRI, magnetic resonance imaging; SAT, somatic adipose tissue; SLT, somatic lean tissue; TEFR09, Transeurope Footrace 2009; TLT, total lean tissue; TSAT, total somatic adipose tissue; TVV, total visceral volume; VAT, visceral adipose tissue.
