Characterization of Normal Caudate Lobe in Sudanese Population by Using Computed Tomography

The caudate lobe is an independent anatomical region in the liver. It also shows different patterns of variability in different populations and Caudate lobe/Right lobe ratio is important for diagnosing. Knowledge and awareness of these variations are useful for Clinicians for the diagnosis and management of hepatic disorders.

The aim of this study was to characterize the normal caudate lobe shape, location, texture and size in Sudanese population by using computed tomography. The study was carried out in three months during the period from December 2015 to February 2016 in Antalya Medical Center (Khartoum) And Military Hospital
(Omdurman). This study carried out in a sample of 50 patients (18males and 32 females) who underwent abdominal CT examination for other reason without liver diseases. The main results of this study were that the caudate lobe measurements (right to left Diameter, antroposterior Diameter, caudate to right lobe ratio) and the right lobe diameter increased with age and this indicate that the size of liver and caudate
lobe increased as the age increased. And the most common shape of the caudate lobe was rectangular 90 %.
Also the study showed that the texture of caudate lobe increased as age increased.
