Volumetric measurement is useful in the clinical practice as it can accurately assess the size of organs and lesions, which aids diagnosis and monitoring of treatment response. This in vitro study was undertaken to evaluate and compare the accuracy of three-dimensional ultrasound (3D-US) volumetric measurements using different numbers of image planes for outlining the region-of-interest. A total of 20 tissue phantoms (10 with regular and 10 with irregular tissue specimens) with known volume (2… CONTINUE READING
