RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Traditionally, maximum gallbladder wall thickness is measured at a single point on ultrasonography. The purpose of this work was to develop an automated technique to measure the thickness of the gallbladder wall over the entire gallbladder surface using computer tomography (CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Subjects who had (5-mm) thick and thin (2.5-mm) reconstruction through the abdomen were selected from a research database. Their volumetric computed tomographic images… CONTINUE READING
