Measurement of liver among Sudanese adults using Computed Tomography

Abstract

This is descriptive study and was conducted in three months during the period

from September 2016, To December 2016 in Ibn Alhaitham Diagnostic center

and DarAleljspecialized Hospital. This study carried out in a sample of 100

patients (44males and 56 females) who underwent to abdominal computed

tomography examination fordifferent reason.

The objective of this study is to evaluate normal liver measurementsin Sudanese

using computed tomography and correlated to age and gender. The study was

The main results of this study were that the mean and standard deviationof all

sample liver texture and measurementsfor mid hepticcraniocaudad, Maximum

craniocaudad, maximum transverse and mid hepticantero posterior was found to

be54.8 ±1.93 Hounsfield, 14.1±0.50, 15.1±0.54, 18.0 ±0.61, 14.2±0.50

centimeter respectively.

Themain results of this study were that themean andstandard deviation of male

liver texture and measurement for mid hepticcraniocaudad, Maximum

craniocaudad, maximum transverse and mid hepticantero posterior was found to

be 54.8±1.93 Hounsfield, 14.1± 0.54, 15.2 ±0.56, 18.0 ±0.62 and 14.2 ±0.52

centimeter respectively. And female liver texture and measurements for mid

hepticcraniocaudad, maximum craniocaudad, maximum transverse dimension

,mid hepticantero posterior was found to be 54.8 ±1.93 Hounsfield , 14.1± 0.51

,15.2 ±0.54 , 18.1 ±0.60, 14.3 ±0.50 centimeter respectively.

The study concluded were that correlation between livertexture and

measurements (mid-hepatic cranio-caudad,maximum cranio-caudad, maximum

transverse dimension,mid-hepatic antero-posterior) decreasedwith age and this

indicate that size of liver decreased with age.And also the study concludedno

difference between males and females subjects at liver textureand

measurements.The study recommendedfuture studies should be done use Positron Emission Tomography / Computed TomographyScan.
