A computerized method for rapid quantification of gallbladder volume from real-time sonograms

Radiology. 1985 Jan;154(1):236-7. doi: 10.1148/radiology.154.1.3880611.


A computerized method that requires only 1-2 minutes to quantify gallbladder volume from real-time sonograms is described. This time is considerably shorter than that required using the hand-calculation method. There was a highly significant correlation between gallbladder volumes calculated by computer and hand (r = 0.97; P less than .001).
