lymphoscintigraphy

lymphoscintigraphy

 [lim″fo-sin-tig´rah-fe]
scintigraphic detection of metastatic tumors in radiolabeled lymph nodes, particularly that using radiolabeled colloid (radiocolloid lymphoscintigraphy). The colloid is taken up by macrophages in the lymph nodes, with depressed uptake in tumor-containing nodes.

lym·pho·scin·tig·ra·phy

(lim'fō-sin-tig'ră-fē),
Scintillation scanning of lymphatics or lymph nodes following intralymphatic or subcutaneous injection of a radionuclide.

lymphoscintigraphy

/lym·pho·scin·tig·ra·phy/ (-sin-tig´rah-fe) scintigraphic detection of metastatic tumor in radioactively labeled lymph nodes, particularly that using radioactively labeled technetium colloid (radiocolloid l.).

lymphoscintigraphy

[-sintig′rəfē]
a diagnostic technique using scintillation scanning of technetium-99m antimony trisulfide colloid in a noninvasive test for primary and secondary lymphedema. The radiopharmaceutical is injected subcutaneously in the interdigital space of the hands and feet.

lymphoscintigraphy

use of a radionuclear agent to demonstrate a lymphatic drainage system, using scintigraphy.
