A person's body weight, height, and age influence the size of their abdominal organs. Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive, radiation-free, fast, low-cost method of evaluating the urinary system and measuring different abdominal organs. The purpose of this study was to correlate body measurements with renal and splenic measurements. A total of 94 university students from both genders were studied by the radiology department at the University of Hail between September 2017 and December 2019. An ultrasonographic scan was performed on all subjects to measure the kidney and spleen length. The respondents were recorded by age, sex, weight, and height. The left kidney is particularly affected by body height and renal length. It was not found that gender and renal length are significantly correlated. Our study revealed no significant relationship between BMI and renal length. A correlation exists between splenomegaly and renal length. Several previous studies have found a strong correlation between body height and renal length. In addition, there was a positive correlation between splenic size and height, as well as between mildly enlarged spleens and top normal left kidney sizes. Neither gender nor BMI had a remarkable correlation with renal length in our study. More studies regarding this area are recommended and will be valuable.
