We found differences in the mean values of AP diameter
of vertebral body of the studies given above but American and Koreans having greater values than us.
In another study, CSA of the median nerve at pisiform, hamate bone levels, and at the distal wrist crease and the AP diameter
of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel and wrist-to-forearm ratio (WFR) showed significant differences between the patient and control groups.

Although APD measurement accuracy is debatable itself, this commonly used ultrasonographic parameters in the follow-up examination of hydronephrotic kidneys is prone to hydration effects, over 10% change in the maximum AP diameter
of the pelvis in the hydronephrotic kidney.
 used MRI images of 100 subjects and came to a conclusion that the tibial ACL insertion in the sagittal plane was on average 36 [+ or -] 6[degrees]%, from 28% to 63% of the distance from the front edge of the tibial plateau of the total AP diameter
of the plateau.
Computed tomography angiography (CTA) chest/abdomen/pelvis with contrast done prior to admission revealed increase in the size of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm which measured 4.3 x 5.2 cm with the largest AP diameter
of 6.1 cm in the AP axis.
The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan demonstrated a 7.8 x 5.8 x 5.7 cm, in vertical x transverse x AP diameter
of well-defined, thin rim, enhancing simple cyst with vascularity at the right anterior intermuscular fascia of the upper thigh, just inferior to the right inguinal region.
The quantitative variable of AP diameter
of AAA in the two modalities showed a mean of 4.152 cm on US and 4.457 cm on CT with SD of 0.927 and 1.036 respectively (fig-1).
Follow-ups included measurement of aforementioned indices in patients: AP diameter
and cortical thickness of the affected kidney, as well as TNF-a and caspase 3 levels in urine, three and six months after pyeloplasty.
For the evaluation of the spinal canal, stenosis is compatible with an AP diameter
of the canal less than 10 mm in the cervical spine or 12 mm in the lumbar spine (Figure 19).
The AP diameter
was measured in two points: in the widest part of the longitudinal section and 5 cm below the uterine fundus (UF), perpendicular to the longitudinal uterine axis.
In sagittal plane maximal AP diameter
of the uterus and maximal AP diameter
of the tumor were registered (Figure 2).
