Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe a new variation of the
technique to evaluate lymph drainage utilizing lymphoscintigraphy.
A LS scan marks the route of lymphatic vessels and
may be used to assess both manual lymph drainage and lymph
drainage after using some apparatuses. This evaluation may be
dynamic, collecting images whilst performing lymph drainage or
static, with scans before and after the lymph drainage procedure.
