new tool: calculate volume (ellipsoid method)

I got an idea fora new tool...
why not implementing a 3 plane measure tool to calculate prostate volume with the ellipsoid method (width x height x length x 0.52)?

every ultrasound machine has it but when you read MR images of prostate you have to draw the 3 measures separately on an axial and sagittal sequences, then annotate the results and do the math using a calculator.

it would be great if RadiAnt could do the math immediately after drawing the 3 line measurement.

I mean, you take those 3 measures with the standard "line" tool, then you go in the "advanced tool" submenu and click "calculate volume (ellipsoid method).

I think that should not be hard to implement.
think about it.

Thanks for another idea, Tommy!

with the same approach you could measure a ratio between 2 measures...
you take 2 lenght measures then calculate the ratios.

i.e. grade a carotid stenosis diameter percentage

i.e. grade an anterior wedge vertebral fractures.

another example of use would be the Insall-Salvati ratio for "patella alta/baja" x-ray measures

a polite ping to remind these useful measurement tool feature requests.

as suggested a "calculate volume (ellipsoid method" after drawing the 3 main diameters would be very useful when dealing with prostate US images.

and a "calculate ratio" would be a bless when dealing with US, MR and CT of carotid stenosis and even when grading a wedge vertebral fracture.
