Any specific tests to see omega 3 & 6 content/ratio in your tissues?

Does anyone know if there are any "fat analysis" type tests that will determine the eicosanoid content in your body's tissues?

This article from Whole Health Source clearly demonstrates the relationship between tissue omega-6 concentrations and heart disease.

Thanks!

Wow, that is perfect! The Heart Scan Blog is one of my favorite resources also.

Well, that looks like an answer. Does it work though?

Dr. Davis from The heart scan blog presents

DA OMEGA 3 INDEX

"Both the percentage of omega-3 fatty acids in red blood cells and the omega-6:omega-3 ratio can now be determined with a fingerstick using a convenient at-home technology."

150 USD for plebs, lil' bit less for the members of his program.

I checked with my lab and they don't do this type of tests neither could they point me out to another service.
