Abstract

Results show the correlations between IMF and different measures of total fat thickness are of similar magnitude, regardless of the measure being a single measure of total subcutaneous fat or a sum of the individual layers. Results also show that the correlation between the inner and outer backfat layers is less than the correlation between the middle layer and the inner and outer layers.
