Aims & Objectives- To evaluate the average spleen length (SL), spleen breadth (SB) and spleen thickness (ST) in adult population of Chhattisgarh. Materials & Methods- 400 subjects (239 females and 161 males) were recruited for the study who underwent abdominal ultrasonography in the department of Radiodiagnosis. Result- mean splenic length, spleen breadth and spleen thickness in females was
92.35±7.98mm, 46.25±8.42mm and 33.38±4.59mm respectively, while in males was 100.44±8.79mm, 47.88±7.52mm and 37.49±5.21mm respectively. Conclusion- Average splenic dimensions for Chhattisgarhi population were established and it was noted that there is a significant difference between splenic dimensions of female and male population.
