The objective of this review is to discuss current modalities and devices as well as highlight promising advancements intended to aid in diagnosing secondary lymp hedema in breast cancer patients.Recent FindingsImaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can offer high resolution of the lymphatics but are expensive and time-consuming. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is an alternative that reveals organ function as opposed to organ structure. Other imaging methods, such as color duplex ultrasound (CDU), laser scanner 3D (LS3D), and dual-energy X-ray absorptiome...
