Here’s something geek doctors will take interest in.
Hitachi has developed a new fat simulation technology that can “simulate” visceral fat. This is shown through cross section images of the abdomen.
Visceral fat, the fats that are found inside our abdomen and peritoneal cavity are usually hard to see with present medical equipment.
The technology uses the body weight and the abdominal size to display the simulated image of the visceral fat. The equipment is being targetted towards people who want to lose weight or those with metabolic problems.
The targets for this device are people with metabolic problems characterized by excessive visceral fat development.
