A randomized trial, meta-analysis, and six independent studies consistently demonstrate that early detection with L-Dex and intervention reduces progression to chronic cancer-related lymphedema.

Understanding fluid shifts that occur in the body can help in the early detection, management, and monitoring of chronic diseases. Lymphedema, most frequently caused by cancer or cancer treatments such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, is one of the most feared consequences of cancer treatment among survivors. If left untreated it can become a lifelong condition.
Obtaining a baseline L-Dex® score and body composition measurements upon cancer diagnosis is important to detecting lymphedema and enhancing cancer survivorship.
Utilizing the SOZO® Digital Health Platform in your clinical practice can greatly improve the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors.1
Dr. Pat Whitworth and Dr. Laura Lawson from the Nashville Breast Center explain why lymphedema prevention is a key component of a cancer survivorship program, and share their experience how implementing a lymphedema protocol, utilizing SOZO with L-Dex, has greatly improved the treatment and outlook for their patients.
Take advantage of SOZO’s powerful data to detect and manage chronic disease:
Offer your patients peace of mind.
The L-Dex score, only available from ImpediMed, is designed to detect lymphedema-related fluid changes in the limbs.
The Lymphedema Prevention Program (LPP) is a comprehensive program for early detection and intervention of cancer-related lymphedema.
Empower your patients to change habits and take charge of their health.
Body Composition Analysis provides a complete fluid, tissue, and metabolic analysis of the human body.
Inspire your patients to care for their whole self.
Segmental Analysis provides a detailed analysis of each arm and each leg.
NCCN Guidelines® recommend patient education and regular monitoring for the early detection of lymphedema.
