Uncover the Flow: MR Lymphography for Lipedema

  • I’d like to share a research paper conducted by a group of US researchers titled “Non-contrast MR Lymphography of Lipedema in the Lower Extremities,” which was published in the peer-reviewed journal Magnetic Resonance Imaging in 2020.
  • The study’s objective was to use Non-Contrast MR Lymphography to examine the imaging findings and lymphatic system characteristics in individuals with lipedema and lipo-lymphedema.
  • The authors conclude that Non-contrast MR Lymphography is a non-invasive and valuable technique for diagnosing and assessing the lymphatic health of patients with these conditions.
