OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to compare a novel infrared optoelectronic system (Perometer) of limb volume measurement with water displacement and two indirect measurement techniques. DESIGN A prospective experimental study. METHODS In 10 healthy male volunteers (20 limbs) we compared limb volume measurements obtained by water displacement, infrared perometry, the disc model method and the frustrum method. In a further 17 patients with swollen limbs due to lymphatic (9 limbs) or… CONTINUE READING
