Quantitative analysis of lymphatic function is crucial for understanding the lymphatic system and diagnosing the associated diseases. Recently, a near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging system is developed for realtime imaging lymphatic propulsion 2 by intradermal injection of microdose of a NIR fluorophore distal to the lymphatics of interest. However, the previous analysis software 4 is underdeveloped, requiring extensive time and effort to analyze a NIR image sequence. In this paper, we… CONTINUE READING
