defined as the points with the maximum and minimum values of f'(s) among those satisfying the condition given by f"(s) = 0. Let f (s) have its maximum and minimum values at s = p and s = q, respectively. The measured thickness, T is defined as the distance between the two detected boundary points, which is given by

The procedures for thickness determination from a volume dataset in the previous section.
