Advances in Lymphatic Imaging and Interventions
In Patients With Central Flow Lymphatic Disorders
About the speaker: Dr. Itkin is nationally and internationally recognized for his clinical and research expertise in interventional treatments of lymphatic disorders. Over the past 15 years, Dr. Itkin has been actively involved in the development of image-guided interventions of the lymphatic system (Thoracic Duct Embolization, liver lymphatic embolization, interstitial lymphatic embolization etc.) as a treatment of lymphatic leakage disorders. Recently Dr. Itkin developed the intranodal lymphangiogram, a simple ultrasound guided puncture of groin lymph nodes in order to opacify the lymphatic system, as a substitute to the more technically challenging pedal lymphangiogram.
