Imaging Lymphatic Function, Dysfunction and Treatment

Eva M. Sevick-Muraca, Ph.D., explains how near-infrared fluorescence lymphatic imaging (NIRFLI) is advancing research in primary and secondary lymphedema.

  • NIRFLI is the first quantifiable method of measuring lymphatic function.
  • Presence of “dermal backflow” in NIRFLI is a key indicator of lymphatic dysfunction.
  • NIRFLI reveals the positive impact of Flexitouch® therapy on lymphatic function.
