Brief Summary:
Estimation of liver volume is important for live donor liver transplant as well as extended liver resections. Computed tomography (CT) volumetry which is currently a gold standard for liver volumetry , is a time consuming process. A quicker method to estimate liver volume is essential. The aim of the present study is to try and formulate an equation based on patients height, weight etc to estimate liver volume.
