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.
