Excerpt

Imaging of the lymphatic system with accurate localization of structural abnormality is crucial in the management of lymphatic disease [1, 2]. Patel et al. have recently published an initial series of patients undergoing intranodal water-soluble CT lymphangiography (CTL), showcasing the technique’s feasibility, ease-of-use, and excellent correlation with subsequent conventional fluoroscopic lymphangiography [3]. Though the reported cases were performed with general anesthesia in a combined CT and interventional radiology unit, we believe the technique has a wider applicability and is technically feasible with less resources. We would like to present our initial experience of using intranodal water-soluble contrast CTL solely in its diagnostic capacity on conventional CT scanner with only local anesthetic. …
