Lymphoscintigraphy

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Lymphoscintigraphy is a noninvasive medical imaging test that provides images of the lymphatic system. These images can help your doctors diagnose problems related to the lymphatic system.

At Boston Children’s, the test is performed by the Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging program which provides a safe, comfortable and patient-friendly atmosphere with:

  • specialized nuclear medicine physicians with expertise in interpreting lymphoscintigraphy scans in patients of all ages—children and adults
  • certified nuclear medicine technologists with years of experience imaging children and teens
  • equipment that has been adapted for use with children
  • protocols that keep the dose of radiation used for the scan as low as possible while assuring high image quality

You can find out more here about what we're doing to keep nuclear medicine and radiology scans as safe as possible for children.
