Lymphedema is on the rise with increasing incidence of cancer and consequent surgeries.
Secondary Lymphedema is a severe morbidity following cancer surgery and radiation therapy.
Identifying and treating lymphedema at an early stage can help physicians provide a superior quality of life to their patients.
.nm Fluorescence Imaging helps physicians in determining the functional integrity of the lymphatic system and providing conservative or surgical treatment options for their patients.
With .nm Fluorescence imaging, surgeons can accurately locate lymphatic channels and lymph nodes to perform procedures like lymphovenous anastomosis or lymph node transfers.
