About this study
The purpose of this study is to determine if ultrasound surface wave elastography (USWE) produces different recording patterns in healthy and lymphadematous limbs, to establish the relationship between USWE recording values and stages of lymphedema, and to understand the correlation between USWE lymphedema evaluation and other tracking modalities.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- Previous lymphedema diagnosis
- Patients suspected of lymphedema but diagnosis has yet to be established
