Most energy metabolism parameters are related to body mass and body composition. For an accurate evaluation of energy expenditure it is, therefore, of advantage to gain precise knowledge about body composition. Time Domain Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (TD-NMR) provides a precise method for the measurement of lean tissue and body fat in live mice without anesthesia. It uses TD-NMR signals from all protons in the entire sample volume and can provide data on lean and fat mass.
