How Analyze was Used
” A single observer drew regions of interest around the gel‐filled rectum on the sagittal T2‐weighted 3D FSE images using AnalyzePro 1.0. For this purpose, the upper edge of the body of the third sacral vertebra constituted the upper boundary of the rectum. Using the segmented areas from the 3D FSE images, the AnalyzePro 1.0 calculated both the rectal area using the midsagittal 3D FSE image and rectal volume from the 3D FSE object maps of the gel‐distended rectum.”
