Stereology was used to measure frontal lobe volume on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans in a multi-observer repeated-measures trial in 17 adults. Prior to measurement, MR image volumes were reoriented into coronal sections perpendicular to the bicommissural plane. Three observers blinded to subject identify repeatedly used fixed grid stereology to estimate frontal lobe volumes, defined as all sections of the frontal lobe anterior to the anterior commissure. The lateral ventricles were… Expand
