As a result of the research set limits of percentile scale sonographic liver size in healthy men from Podilia region of Ukraine with different somatotypes. When comparing the data of sizes between men of different somatotypes only the thickness of the right lobe of the liver on inhaling in representatives of endo-mesomorphic somatotype was significantly higher compared with representatives of ecto-mesomorphic somatotype and the thickness of the caudate lobe of the liver in representatives of endo- mesomorphic somatotype significantly smaller or has the tendency to lower values compared with men mesomorphic and ecto-mesomorphic somatotype. The rest of the sonographic liver size had not significant differences or trends between healthy men of different somatotypes.
