Brundavani et al reported equations for estimating the area of deep abdominal adipose tissue tissue (DAAT) in an adult Indian man or woman. The authors are from Sri Venkateswara University and St. John's Institute of Population Health and Clinical Research in India

Patient selection: Indian adult from 40 to 79 years of age


Estimate: area of adipose tissue in square cm



(1) sex of the patient

(2) waist circumference in cm

(3) weight in kilograms


DAAT in square cm for a female =

= (5.19 * (waist circumference)) - (0.86 * (weight)) - 278


DAAT in square cm for a male =

= (6.04 * (waist circumference)) + (1.09 * (weight)) - (2.29 * (BMI)) - 382.9
