A range of techniques have been developed and used to quantify these gastrointestinal perfusion abnormalities The following techniques have been used to study gastrointestinal perfusion in humans, tonometry, laser Doppler flowmetry, reflectance spectrophotometry, near-infrared spectroscopy, orthogonal polarisation spectral imaging indocyanine green clearance, hepatic vein catheterisation and measurements of plasma D-lactate.
Normal values in healthy control subjects for indocyanine green clearance and for indocyanine green plasma disappearance rate are >700 ml/min/m (2) and 18% /min respectively.
Estimated hepatic blood flow calculated from systemic indocyanine green clearance correlates poorly with values obtained using hepatic vein catheterisation and the Fick principle, because of the variability in dye extraction (6).
