AIM OF THE STUDY: To prove the liquid meal having less influence on Portal vein flow velocity than solid meal in healthy volunteers and cirrhotic patients using colour doppler ultra sonagraphy. METHOD: 32 healthy volunteers and 20 cirrhotic patients were studied after solid and liquid meal ingestion by using color doppler ultra sound missing. RESULTS: By using ANOVA student ‘t’ test all the results were analysis. The study showed significant decrese in portal flow velocity compare with solid meal in healthy volunteers. In cirrhotic patients there is no significant change between both solid and liquid meal. CONCLUSION: The study conclude that liquid meal having less influence on portal flow velocity in healthy volunteers. There was no significant change in cirrhotic patients.
