Improved Patient Outcomes

NCCN Guidelines® »
Recommend to “educate, monitor, and refer for lymphedema management”

Meta-Analysis »
In a meta-analysis of more than 67,000 women, bioimpedance was found to reduce the rate of breast cancer-related lymphedema by 81% compared to tape measure (3% with bioimpedance vs. 17% circumference, p<0.05)

PREVENT Trial »
The PREVENT randomized trial interim analysis demonstrated a 95% reduction in progression to chronic lymphedema at 1 year

PREVENT Radiation Analysis »
L-Dex discriminates risk of breast cancer related lymphedema risk by the extent of axillary surgery and radiation unlike circumference measurements

L-Dex Clinical Practice Guidelines »
Clinical guidelines are available to create a schedule for measurements and intervention

L-Dex Cost Analysis »
L-Dex can be incorporated into the clinic with limited time added to visits and represents a cost-savings as compared to circumference measurements

5th Primary Vital Sign® »
Workflow best practices: place SOZO right next to scale at check-in and bill independently from APM in follow up visits
