Abstract

In 44 practically healthy men Podillia region of Ukraine mesomorphic somatotype built significant regression models sonographic parameters of right and left kidneys depending on anthropometric and somatic parameters with coefficient of determination (R2) greater than 0.6. Of the 16 possible sonographic parameters of kidneys built only 7 significant regression models (namely, the width of the right and left kidney in longitudinal section, anteroposterior size of the right and left kidney cross section, the cross-section of the right kidney, cross-sectional area sinus of the right kidney and volume of the left kidney) with R2 from 0.615 to 0.715. Sonographic parameters built models both kidneys often include - girth body size (23.9%), the diameter of the body (19.6%) and thickness of skin and fat folds and width of distal epiphysis of long bones of the extremities (by 15.2%). Separately, models of the right kidney most often include the circumferential dimensions of the body, body diameters and the thickness of skin and fat folds (by 18.5%); and the left kidney - the circumferential dimensions of the body (31,6%) and the diameter of the body (21,1%).
