Lymphangiograms is a definitive test to confirm lymphatic obstruction (Lorimer, D.
These modalities include plain radiograph; CT, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography (PET) scans; and lymphangiograms.
Biopsies performed of filling defects visualized upon lymphangiography are positive in 50% to 90% of patients with suspicious lymphangiograms, whereas only 15% of patients with normal lymphangiograms have positive biopsies.
