An embodiment relates to a method of evaluating a lymphatic system function including: selecting one or a plurality of lymphatic routes to be evaluated from a plurality of lymphatic routes existing in four limbs; determining an injection site of a visualization agent based on information on the selected lymphatic route and injection sites of peripheries of the four limbs corresponding to the selected lymphatic route; injecting the visualization agent from the selected injection site, and visualizing the injected visualization agent and evaluating functions of the one or plurality of lymphatic routes to be evaluated.

Abstract

A method of evaluating a lymphatic system function, comprising: selecting one or a plurality of lymphatic routes to be evaluated from an anteromedial route, an anterolateral route, a posteromedial route, and a posterolateral route of a human lower limb; determining an injection site of a visualization agent based on information on the selected lymphatic route and injection sites of peripheries of human lower limbs corresponding to the selected lymphatic route; injecting the visualization agent from the selected injection site; and visualizing the injected visualization agent and evaluating, based on whether the visualization agent has passed through the selected lymphatic route, functions of the one or plurality of lymphatic routes, wherein the injection site of the visualization agent is three or more of injection sites selected from human lower limb injection sites 1, 7, 14, and 16 shown in FIG. 1.
