Lymphangiogram Xrays are presented here in two views.
A lymphangiogram is a special type of X-ray of the lymph nodes and lymph vessels. Lymph nodes may not be seen clearly on a standard X-ray, so dye is often injected into the body to highlight the area.
X-rays are used for a multitude of reasons. A physician may order an X-ray to check for certain cancers in different parts of the body by detecting abnormal tumors, growths or lumps.
A lymph node X-ray is used to view the area of the body where a patient is experiencing pain, swelling, or other abnormalities that require an internal view of the organs. The X-ray can help a physician find a cause for the problems occurring.
X-rays can be used to diagnose a disease, monitor the progression of the disease, determine a treatment plan, and see the effect of a treatment plan.
Physicians use X-rays to locate foreign objects within the body and to guide them in setting broken bones.
An X-ray of the lymph nodes can result in detecting enlarged nodes, which will appear foamy.
Detecting enlarged lymph nodes can also lead to the diagnosis of lymphatic cancer.
Another sign of lymphatic cancer that can be determined by taking an X-ray of the lymph nodes is if the dye injected into the body to highlight the area does not show up on the X-ray. This can indicate that there is a blockage.
A lymph node X-ray that shows a blockage could indicate that there is a tumor, infection, or injury, which can also be detected.
