Abstract

In the course of studies on the lymphatic circulation of the hind limbs of the dog carried out in our Laboratory, a method using radioactive tracers was developed which allows the determination of some parameters related to lymph circulation: the mean transit time through a segment of the lymphatic system and the lymphatic flow.

This technique is inocuous for the subject, causes a minimal disturbance of the physiological factors involved in lymph flow, and is based on some properties of constant flows through systems of labyrinths.
