Özet

Background: Human epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a type of visceral adipose tissue functioning as a metabolically active endocrine organ by secreting several hormones and adipocytokines. In this study, we aimed to assess the relationship between EAT measured by dual source multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and the presence and components of metabolic syndrome (MS).
