ICG Lymphatic Imaging
Imaging to map your unique lymphatics in real-time providing valuable insight and a bespoke lymphatic mapping plan, to assist with lymphatic drainage, with the aim of achieving improved outcomes and effective self-management.
A comprehensive ICG screening programme for early detection of lymphoedema, for those at risk of developing the condition.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage with a highly skilled and certified fluoroscopy guided (FG-MLD®) therapist, a researched and effective method of MLD with proven results.
Our highly trained and expertly skilled therapists have access to an extensive range of products, devices and innovative techniques to effectively carry out a comprehensive management and reduction plan.
What is ICG Imaging?
Advancements in technology have made it possible for us to visualise the lymphatics in real-time. Using a special camera, and an injection of fluorescent medical dye, we can see the lymphatic vessels and lymph fluid in the the tissue. This allows us to identify how they are working, where they are draining to and any lymphatic failure.
Our ICG Lymphography clinics use unique protocols which were established by Professor JP Belgrado at the Brussels Lymphology Research Unit. Our procedure allows us to assess your full lymphatic status by the visualising and ‘mapping’ of your lymphatic pathways. This allows for tailored treatment plans and enhanced lymphatic drainage.
Combined with Fluoroscopy Guided Manual Lymphatic Drainage (FG-MLD ) and Self Lymphatic Drainage (SLD) is designed to provide faster results and improved outcomes.
Why ICG Imaging?
Being able to ‘map’ the lymphatics allows us to:
- Offer specialist diagnosis and assessment
- Map individual pathways
- Allow for optimised FG-MLD®
- Improve long term outcomes and quality of living
- Create a bespoke mapping plan utilising your unique drainage pathways
- Tailor a management or reduction plan around your needs and lifestyle
- Identify early lymphatic failure
- Identify changes and anticipate developments
- Teach you self-management techniques you can use for life
Is ICG Imaging Safe?
ICG has been used very safely and successfully for over 50 years. By following our unique protocols, there have never been any reported cases of adverse effects. Other lymphatic imaging techniques require radioactivity, however ICG Lymphography Imaging is not harmful and does not use radiation or require x-ray.
Are you worried about Lymphoedema as a result of cancer treatment? Would you like peace of mind?
Research has found that some cancer treatments, such as radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery can increase the risk of developing swelling. The earliest way to identify Lymphoedema is by being able to see your lymphatics.
By following our screening programme, changes to your lymphatics will be detected as early as possible, often before you may feel the changes yourself. Recognising the condition early is critical in preventing the long-term, more serious effects.
Lymphatic Screening can:
- Allow for earliest treatment
- Provide reassurance
- Identify any problems early
- Put you in control
- Increase the effectiveness of MLD
- Improve long term outcomes
ICG Lymphatic Imaging is suitable for all types of lymphoedma, for primary or secondary oedema and for lipoedema patients.
The imaging procedure can vary slightly depending on your oedema, the extent of investigation, and which clinic you chose- please contact our team for the most accurate pricing information.
Appointments are available throughout England, we have clinic locations in Staffordshire, Cumbria and Oxfordshire.
All in all it has been immensely helpful and informative to have the fluoroscopy mapping. Jane’s expertise and knowledge is second to none and meeting her has helped me to come to terms with the condition much better. Understanding the extent of the condition has been invaluable and I feel much more confident about living/dealing with it on a daily basis.Patient
The entire process from start to finish was incredibly informative. Jane took the time to educate me and show me the challenges of my condition and what I could do better moving forward.Patient
My thanks to Jane for her very thorough report. It will certainly help our treatments in the future.Kerry, Therapist
