Abstract: We assessed the effect of the method of analysis and the MRI slice thickness on entorhinal cortex volumetry. A T1 gradient echo 3D volumetric acquisition was reformatted into different slice thickness and analyzed by edge-tracing. We performed two different forms of analysis of images with 3 mm slice thickness: edge-tracing and pixel by pixel. There was difference among the volumes obtained from different slice thickness (p < 0.001), and also difference between the two different methods of analysis (p < 0.05). The use of thick slices is time saving, but volumes are linearly increased; different methods of segmentation also yields different values. The form of volumetric analysis of the entorhinal cortex should be evaluated in advance to prevent false estimates in longitudinal studies.
