Abstract: We extrapolate lattice calculations of electric charge radii of the spin-1/2 baryon octet to the physical regime. The extrapolation procedure incorporates chiral perturbation theory and heavy quark effective theory in the appropriate limits. In particular, this procedure includes the non-analytic, logarithmic terms from pion loops. The electric charge radii of the nucleons and Σ− obtained from the chiral extrapolations agree well with experimental data. We make predictions for the charge radii of the remaining baryons in anticipation of future experimental measurements
