Does portal hypertension modify colonic mucosal vasculature? Quantification of alteration by image processing and topology.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Endoscopic images of the colonic mucosal venous structure in eight cirrhotic patients with esophageal varices and in eight noncirrhotic subjects were analyzed to qualitatively determine whether or not the vasculature be altered by persisting portal hypertension. METHODS On the endoscopic images, a venous network consisting of confluent venous… (More)
