Time: 9:30 am

  • How imaging can be used in drug development to further the understanding of where the weight is actually lost using body and muscle composition as well as looking at other ectopic fat depots
  • Imaging can be used to investigate the effects of weight loss on downstream organs and disease states including the liver, kidney, and heart
