Infra-red photography of the abdominal wall in portal cirrhosis of the liver

Article

Summary and conclusions

Infra-red photography of the abdominal wall by visualization of the superficial veins of the abdomen presents a true pattern of these veins. This pattern varies in health and in abdominal disease. The pattern of the superficial veins of the abdomen in cirrhosis of the liver is pathognomonic of it. As such, it can be used to confirm a suspected case of this disease. However, the absence of the characteristic vein pattern does not rule out early portal cirrhosis of the liver.
