Trends in Subcutaneous Tumour Height and Impact on Measurement Accuracy
Tumour volume is typically calculated using only length and width measurements, using width as a proxy for height in a 1:1 ratio. When tracking tumour growth over time, important morphological information and measurement accuracy is lost by ignoring height, which we show is a unique variable. Lengths, widths, and heights of 9,522 subcutaneous tumours in mice were measured using 3D and thermal imaging. The average width:height ratio was found to be 1:3 proving that using width as a proxy fordoi:10.1101/2022.09.29.510123 fatcat:7awgzih3cfbovezwjh4xykse2q
