Ultrasound-estimated bladder weight (UEBW) has the promise to become an important indicator for the diagnosis of bladder outlet obstruction. Our goal was to develop and evaluate an approach to accurately, consistently, conveniently, and noninvasively measure UEBW using three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging. A 3D image of the bladder is acquired using a handheld ultrasound machine. The infravesical region of the bladder is delineated on this 3D data set to enable the calculation of bladder… CONTINUE READING
