Comparison of body fat areas between subjects bearing detectable (+) and undetectable (-) amounts of BAT by gender.

All continuous parameters were summarized by means ± SD. For skewness distribution data, median and interquartile range was used. P values were calculated from analysis of variance for continuous variable, chi-square tests for categorical variable or rank sum tests for skewness distribution variable:

*p<0.05,

p<0.0001.
