Correlation between body mass index and body composition parameters based on modalities

Parameter Preoperative Postoperative
r P-value r P-value
BMI CT Total fat 0.77 <0.001 0.80 <0.001
VFA 0.65 <0.001 0.64 <0.001
BIA Body fat 0.71 <0.001 0.71 <0.001
VFA 0.58 <0.001 0.65 <0.001

r represents Pearson’s correlation coefficient.

P-value for statistical significance computed using Pearson’s correlation test.

BMI = body mass index; CT = computed tomography; BIA = bioelectrical impedance analysis; VFA = visceral fat area.
