Continuous microcirculation monitoring of the right foot was carried out for the first time in a 62-year-old patient with cryoglobulinaemia prior to, during and after manual needle insertion at Jic Xi(St.41) acupuncture point using a new method of laser Doppler perfusion imaging (PIMII, Lisca AB, Linkoping, Sweden). In addition to visual inspection, changes in mean perfusion were also used as evaluation parameters. Our results suggest that the new biomedical technique of laser Doppler imaging is a useful method for monitoring the effects of acupuncture on the peripheral microcirculation.
