Abstract

Hippocampal volume has been measured and used to separate the people who have Alzheimer disease, stress-related psychiatric disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder, and schizophrenia from normal people. Owing to the long time to measure the volume of the hippocampus and the difficulty to measure temporal horn, we established standard values of the area, width, and height of hippocampus and temporal horn of the lateral ventricle in certain planes in healthy subjects to aid in the clinical diagnosis.
