The goal of the study is to investigate the use of bio-impedance spectroscopy in the assessment of breast cancer related lymphoedema in patients operated with lumpectomy or mastectomy, axillary lymph node dissection and radiotherapy compared to inverse water volumetry. As a control group, patients with colon rectal cancer are used to compare volumetric and spectometric changes during follow-up.
Tris trial is registered with FDA with number: NCT01599039. The sponsor of the trial is Nij Smellinghe Hosptial and it is looking for 80 volunteers for the current phase.
Official trial title:
