Expected spleen size
Provides upper limit of normal for spleen length and volume by ultrasound relative to body height and gender.
Spleen size is significantly influenced by body height and sex. This tool is designed to calculate approximate percentiles of an individual´s spleen size. The algorithm is based on the height- and sex-corrected normal values for homeostatic spleen length and volume (for women between 155 and 179 cm and men between 165 and 199 cm body height). Upper limits of normal for spleen length and volume are provided after entering gender and body height, spleen length and volume percentiles for gender and body height are calculated if additional sonographic spleen length, AP diameter and width arere entered.
