What does it consist of?

Lymphoscintigraphy is a diagnostic imaging method that uses tracers labeled with radioactive isotopes to study lymphatic vessels.


It consists of the subcutaneous injection of a radiotracer (nanocolloids labeled with Technetium-99m). Subsequently, images are obtained in front of a device (gamma camera), from 20 minutes to 3 hours post-injection.


The images may be localized, full body or tomographic (SPECT). Objective: Identify or rule out different lymphatic pathologies, to contribute to the diagnosis, prognostic assessment and adequate treatment.
