The interpretation of twoâ€�dimensional radiographs or computerized tomography (CT) or ultrasound (US) sections with inferences made about threeâ€�dimensional anatomy is the foundation of diagnostic radiology. A large variety of estimation methods which can be applied to twoâ€�dimensional CT/US sections to estimate their threeâ€�dimensional properties is presented. The techniques are easily utilized in a research or clinical setting, do not require computerization, and can provide statistically accurate threeâ€�dimensional information based on twoâ€�dimensional sampling with a minimum of effort. Although the examples are directed at diagnostic radiology, the estimation procedures may be employed in analogous fields such as microscopy or section anatomy.
