Bioelectrical Impedance to Monitor Lymphedema After Breast Cancer

Purpose:

To evaluate a person for lymphedema of a limb using the ratio of resistances at 0 frequency during bioelectric impedance measurements.

Specialty:

Gynecological Oncology

Objective:

complication detection

ICD-10:

C50

Description:

Bioelectrical impedance can serve as a sensitive and early detector of lymphedema in women following axillary node dissection for breast carcinoma. This can be used to monitor the patient's response to treatment. The authors are from Queensland University in Brisbane, Australia.
