Table 3 Pearson correlations (sex-adjusted) in 1629 participants among C2 and several measures of body mass index (BMI, at baseline = exam 1) and abdominal intermuscular adipose tissue (IMAT), muscle lean volume (LEAN) and visceral adipose tissue (VAT) obtained by computed tomography at MESA (mean 1.64 and 3.20 years after MESA baseline, respectively = exam 2 and 3)
