Abstract

A method has been developed that allows the generation of a three‐dimensional representation of the canine prostate from a pair of orthogonal radiographs. This information can be used to externally measure the length, width, and height of the prostate and from these results to calculate prostate weight. This externally estimated prostate weight is correlated closely (r = 0.90) with the actual prostate weight. The ability to generate an external caliper measurement of prostate weight will facilitate future studies of the effect of aging and hormonal manipulation on the canine prostate.
