Dengel featured in FOXBusiness article on new tool that measures belly fat
Dr. Don Dengel, associate professor of exercise physiology, was mentioned in a FOXBusiness piece titled, "Doctors Get New Tool to Measure Belly Fat." The piece discusses CoreScan, a new technology from GE, that can quickly measure visceral (belly) fat during a body composition analysis.
According to Dengel, "Just as important as obesity is where the fat is located. If the fat is packed into the visceral area, we've found it has a high relationship with cardio vascular disease ... Before CoreScan came along we didn't have the option. When someone came in they got an analysis of their body composition, but they didn't have the option to look at visceral fat."
