In the Methods and Procedures section of this paper, the pixel range in the paragraph headed “Abdominal adipose tissue measurements” was incorrect. Instead of “Using a pixel range of −190 to −30 Hounsfield Unit as the range for fat, the area of adipose tissue within the region of interest was determined using image analysis,” the statement should be “Using a pixel range of −160 to 0 Hounsfield Unit as the range for fat, the area of adipose tissue within the region of interest was determined using image analysis.”

In addition in Table 1, the units for VAT and SAT in column 1 should have been cm3 instead of cm2.
