The value of multiple frequency bioelectric impedence analysis (MFBIA) in the monitoring and management of post-mastectomy lymphoedema of the arm was evaluated in 15 patients and controls. The technique was found to produce quantitative agreement with a clinical diagnosis of lymphoedema and with the currently-used measure (limb volume calculated from circumferential measurements) of limb size. The significance of this finding lies in MFBIA being diagnostically informative: it indicates when an… CONTINUE READING
