Lymphangiography, the radiographic demonstration of the lymphatic system by intralymphatic injection of contrast material, has, in our experience, proved to be a new and useful diagnostic tool. Early attempts to visualize the lymphatic system radiographically consisted of either injecting the contrast material into subcutaneous tissues for uptake into adjacent lymphatics,1 or direct injection into large palpable peripheral lymph nodes.2-4 Kinmonth, in 1955, devised a practical method for direct intralymphatic injection of the contrast material to study lymphedema of the leg.5-9 We have modified this method to gain two important advantages: (1) by slow bilateral injection of the lower extremities we
