Abstract

Patients with both primary and secondary lymphedema must undergo appropriate examinations to evaluate variations and characteristics of lymphedema in order to determine optimal clinical management and appropriate definitive treatment. Appropriate minimally-invasive imaging has an important role in the management of lymphedema, especially lymph-venous microsurgery. The familiarization of appropriate techniques helps radiologists in recognizing, reporting, and determining the management of lymphedema. The purpose of this article is to discuss lymphatic anatomy and pathology, Magnetic Resonance Imaging technique, and points to report on in order to assist the management of lower extremity lymphedema.
