          Abstract

          Imaging of the lymphatic system is difficult because of its structural and anatomical characteristics, and the conventional diagnostic method, radionuclide-based imaging, has the disadvantage of poor resolution. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has been shown the capability of depicting lymphatic channels in lymphedema recently. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the imaging of MR lymphangiography (MRL) in diagnosis of limb lymphedema and its possible role in the microsurgical management of lymphedema.
