Abstract: Introduction: The aim of this study was to identify the normal measurement of liver size for Sudanese adult using ultrasound in order to compare this measurement with international liver measurement studies and to correlate the relationship between somatic parameters and liver measurements with ultrasound in Sudanese adults that have morphologically normal liver. Methodology: The method adapted was an experimental study among a sample consists of 100 patients having mean age of 37.9 years (60 female and 40 male) in the period from October 2018 to June 2019. Mindary diagnostic ultrasound equipment model DP10 and Sonoscape diagnostic ultrasound machine model A5, standardized transabdominal scan using curvilinear transducer 3.5MHZ were used, the liver was measured length (CC) and width (AP). Results: The result showed that the mean value for liver AP is (13.3 ± 0.84) and for liver CC (13.4 ± 0.89). A significant difference noticed between liver measure and age group, also with gender at p 0.05 and confident level CL 95 % according to independent sample t-test. Conclusion: The study proved that: our average measured liver diameter seem close enough to 13.4 cm or less in Sudanese adults, it is recommended that further studies must be conducted to provide a more accurate assessment of liver size.
