The in vivo 3D surface geometry of the bladder was recovered, including the components of the metric and curvature tensors. Analysis of the resulting data revealed that the modeling of the bladder as a simple geometric shape is inappropriate, and more rigorous treatments of 3D bladder geometry are warranted.
