Lymphazurin is a blue dye injected into the lymphatic system as an aid in lymphography. Doctors use Isosulfan Blue to visualize lymphatic fluids, lymph nodes, and lymphatic vessels.
The lymph nodes and lymphatic vessels contain lymph, a clear liquid that circulates throughout the lymphatic system.
This makes Isosulfan Blue useful in diagnosing conditions such as lymphedema, chyluria (lymph in urine), chylous ascites (lymph in the stomach), chylothorax (lymph in the chest), cancers in the lymph nodes and checking the condition of lymph nodes during cancer treatment.
Isosulfan Blue is an injectable medication, and you need a prescription to purchase it.
Only use Isosulfan blue according to doctor’s instructions.
