This study suggested that lymphoscintigraphy severity stage and arm dermal backflow stage on ICG lymphography could work synergistically to evaluate lymphedema severity. As the author states, to evaluate lymph kinetics comprehensively by using characteristics both of lymphoscintigraphy and ICG lymphography is important.
