BACKGROUND The aim was to assess the agreement between bioimpedance indices and inter-limb volume differences, as assessed by perometry, for assessment of unilateral arm lymphedema. METHODS Impedance was measured in the arms of 45 women with lymphedema and a separate control group without lymphedema (n = 21). Arm volume was measured at the same time by perometry. The impedance indices, (ratio of impedances between limbs and the L-dex scores) were compared to the inter-limb volume differences… CONTINUE READING
