Abstract

Two methods for estimating the weight of the canine prostate gland in vivo were investigated. Twenty-six beagle dogs underwent transrectal and transabdominal ultrasound examination of the prostate, followed by careful, standardized caliper measurement of the prostate at surgical exploration. The prostate glands were then removed and weighed, and nomograms were constructed for use in future laboratory research. The validity of these nomograms for determining prostate weight in vivo was confirmed on evaluation of additional dogs.
