The white lines of Toldt are zones of avascular peritoneum along the lateral edges of the ascending colon and descending colon. Because these areas are virtually avascular, incisions are typically made along these lines when removing the colon or mobilizing it in order gain access to the kidneys and/or ureter. This photograph is not the greatest example, but note that the ascending colon is just to the anatominal left of the probe.
