Poster Information
Abstract: Dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance lymphangiography is a radiation-free, high spatial resolution technique which is increasingly used to evaluate thoracic lymphatic disorders and for pre-procedural planning. DCE has the added advantage of allowing dynamic real-time evaluation of lymphatic flow. It can be employed to investigate commonly encountered clinical situations such as recurrent pleural effusions following trauma, thoracic duct injury after thoracic surgery, and exclude diseases and congenital malformations of the thoracic lymphatic system. The imaging procedure and protocol are detailed in this case series to highlight the application of dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance lymphangiography in everyday practice and its importance to guide surgical planning.Summary: MRI is a simple and radiation free alternative to traditional lymphatic imaging techniques. In this case series, we discuss our experience of the imaging technique and protocol of dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) magnetic resonance (MR) lymphangiography to help answer commonly encountered clinical questions.
