The purpose of this study is to use data from a multimodality image set to devise a method for examining changes in organ location, morphology, and rib coverage from the supine to seated postures.  ...  Increases in rib coverage from the supine to seated posture were observed for the liver, with a 9.6% increase in a lateral projection and a 4.6% increase in a frontal projection.  ...  Thanks are due to Lucas Swenson who supported the project through the undergraduate work study program at Wake Forest University.  ...
