Stool Pictures

If possible, please upload up to two pictures of your child's stool. This is not mandatory but is very helpful for our team to better assess your baby's risk for biliary atresia.

Best Practices:

  • Ensure the photo focuses on the stool:
    • You do not need to capture the surrounding area of the diaper/change-table.
    • Do not include the face of your child, body parts, or any other person in the picture.
  • Take pictures in a well-lit room/environment:
    • Unless necessary, avoid using the flash on your phone or camera. The flash may distort the stool colour in the image.
    • Try to avoid shadows that might make the stool look darker. It helps to push the curved part of the diaper upwards so it lays flat in the photo.
  • Do not markup or edit the picture in any way.



If possible, please upload up to two pictures of your child's stool. This is not required but will be helpful for our team to assess whether your child may have Biliary Atresia.
