Early Dx Using Rest/Stress Lymphoscintigraphy
- Today I’d like to tell you about a study that was performed by a group of surgeons in Italy.
- The paper is titled: Rest/stress intradermal lymphoscintigraphy in diagnosis of lipedema.
- It was published in the peer-reviewed journal World Journal of Nuclear Medicine in 2020 and the lead author is Dr. Tartaglione.
- The authors propose using rest/stress lymphoscintigraphy to diagnose lipedema in early stages and to evaluate lymphatic functioning in later stages of lipedema.
