epididymal fat pad weight to tibia length ratio 
A calculated value in which the weight of the epididymal fat pad, the encapsulated adipose tissue that is attached to the epididymis, is divided by the length of the tibia, the inner and larger bone of the lower leg or hindlimb, and presented as a ratio, fraction, quotient or percentage, thus normalizing it to the length of the leg and, by extension, to the length of the body.
