Estimate of liver volume on CT or MRI - calculator

This formula can be used to estimate volume of the liver on crossectional imaging methods by measuring its maximum dimension in three perpendicular axes - caudocranial (CC), latero-lateral (LL), antero-posterior (AP). A normal value is considered <2000mL.

Volume = CC x LL x AP x 0.31
