The purpose of the present study was to develop a non-invasive method capable of measuring the regional blood volume in the peripheral circulation. External counting of autologous radiolabelled erythrocytes was performed by dynamic scintigraphy of the calf. During short venous stasis synchronous changes in segmental blood volumes were recorded by plethysmography, thereby obtaining a calibration factor. The recordings were performed with the position of the calf varying between elevated… CONTINUE READING
