Note

A "cubic decimeter" is a "liter", just as a "cubic centimeter" is a "milliliter" (of water). Though there are specific units "l" and "ml" in UCUM, only one form is included here, since this context group is intended for use for volume measurements of a physical object derived from one or more images, rather than of fluid volume.
