There are two types of obesity, visceral fat obesity and subcutaneous fat obesity, and both can be determined with abdominal CT images. Visceral fat obesity leads to a high risk of diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and lifestyle-related diseases, and the importance of early detection with medical examinations and guidance for an improvement in lifestyle is increasing.

The fatPointer displays the regions of visceral fat and subcutaneous fat in different colors. Thereby, when explaining examination results to the patient for “informed consent” and so on, details can be shown visually for easy understanding compared with conventional explanations with values.
