CRITICAL CONSIDERATIONS ON LYMPHOGRAPHY-THE LIMITATIONS OF MORPHOLOGICAL DIAGNOSIS

Abstract

Although about 15 years have elapsed since the introduction of direct lymphography to clinical practice and the method to-day can be regarded almost as a routine one in diagnostic radiology, much experimental and clinical research must be done before the diagnostic possibilities of lymphography can be fully estimated. This research must be based on a thorough knowledge of the morphology and physiology of the lymphatic system. A short description will be given here of some morphological characteristics of lymph vessels and nodes, the knowledge of which I have found valuable when performing lymphography and when interpreting lymphograms. The account is principally based on combined macro and microradiographic and histological investigations of the lymphatic system of dogs and rabbits.
