Estimation Of Splenic Volume In Sudanese Adults Using Ultrasonography

Abstract

The spleen is the largest haemolymph nodes in the body and large part of the reticuloendothelial tissue of the body is concentrated in it. This is an experimental study designed to determine the application of ultrasound for estimation of splenic weight, length and height of Sudanese adult patients. Fifty adult patients were enrolled in the study; healthy volunteer persons who referred to ultrasound department for abdomen ultrasound were included. Any person with abnormal splenic measurement was excluded. The result of the study revealed that the splenic length, width, and thickness were measured the mean of each was 9.5±1.1 cm, 6.6±0.8 cm and 3.4±0.5 cm respectively. Splenic volume was calculated, the mean of it was 161.4± 41.7.The weight and length of the spleen compared with body height and weight, it showed a significant correlation. Furthermore, there is a linear relationship between BMI and splenic volume. The results of this study could be used as a practical and comprehensive guide to indicate the normal spleen length; according to the age and body habitus. With this in mind, so as to distinguish and thus better assess individuals with markedly long spleens outside the normal range but whose body parameters are within the normal range.
