Abstract: Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examine the shape, size, and the average normal volume of the pituitary gland which is normal in various age ranges in both genders. To be aware with the pituitary gland's typical structure as well as the physiological variations in order to diagnose diseases in the pituitary gland. A retrospective analysis included 250 patients who had undergone MRI of brain in Radio-diagnosis department. Cases with endocrine or disorders of pituitary were not included in the study. Philips 3 Tesla scanner was used to capture MRI images. A p-value of 0.05 or lower was deemed as significant. Average pituitary height was 6.3?1 mm. Except for the range of 1 to 10 & 11 to 20 years, the average height of the pituitary in females in each group was higher compared to males of same age range. The most prevalent shape was flat, followed by convex and concave. To measure the abnormal growth in size, one must be familiar with physiological variance in the pituitary glands shape, size compared to the typical range of height and volume in both sexes and various age groups in the Indian population.
