Age and sex dependence of the size of normal ventricles on computed tomography

Neuroradiology. 1977 Dec 31;14(4):201-4. doi: 10.1007/BF00496984.


Several parameters of the normal ventricular size have been measured routinely on more than 170 computed tomographic scans of patients with normal neurological findings. All patients have been classified into age groups of 15 years each. Means and further statistical values, separate for male and female, have been calculated and figured in a table and histograms.
