Segmentation size measurements (craniocaudal length and max diameter) to table

Operating system: Windows 11 Home
Slicer version: 4.11.20200930

It is my first time writing in this forum.
I would like to measure the craniocaudal length and max diameter (in axial plane) of a segmentation. Actually, of around 180, so not having to measure these manually would be great. I have already read the Segment Statistics module documentation, but I am still not sure if some of the values it can output there are what I am looking for. As long as I can understand, the craniocaudal length could be the same as the Oriented Bounding Box Diameter (one of its values), but in an axis oriented bounding box. And about max diameter, I have read something in another post, and it was not possible to get it automatically when it was answered.

Is anything of what I want to do possible?

Thank you very much in advance.

It would probably help if you could post a screenshot or two of the data you are trying to measure.

Thank you very much for the fast answer, and sorry for taking so long to get back to you.
After reading some more articles about this topic, I don’t think anymore that these are too relevant measurements.

Anyway here are a pair of snapshots trying to show what I was referring to (with the properties label disabled, for better visibility).
The red markup represents a measurement along the supero-inferior axis, what would be the “height” of the volume. The green markup is meant to be a measurement in a plane that is perpendicular to the previous axis, and made between the two more distant opposed points of the boundary (in a line that intersects with the supero-inferior axis that goes trough the center of mass).

Thank you very much for your interest and time, and feel free to leave the topic as it is, as I will be sticking to more common methods for volume comparison, such as the Dice Simmilarity Coefficient or the generalized Conformity Index.


Segment Statistics module can compute anatomically oriented bounding box (to get craniocaudal length) and segment oriented bounding box (to get maximum diameters along the main object axes) and the module can also provide various other shape statistics. You need to enable computation of these metrics, as they are disabled by default.
