Ultrasonography and computed tomography were used to determine hepatic volume in vivo. The data obtained were compared with the weight and volume of the same livers after surgical removal at the time of orthotopic hepatic transplantation. The relationship between hepatic weight and volume was found to be linear over a 16-fold range of weights and a 19-fold range of volumes. The sonographic results more closely paralleled the results obtained directly. These data demonstrate that both methods… CONTINUE READING
