A degree of postmortem lividity was related to a subcutaneous hemoglobin concentration, which can be measured by using light absorption.
On the basis of this theory, the authors have developed an instrument utilizing a light to measure the degree of postmortem lividity.
By using 42 corpses whose postmortem intervals were known, the authors examined the relationship between the actual postmortem intervals and the measurements, and found that there was significant correlation between them.
