Descriptions


Isosulfan blue injection is used as an aid in a procedure called lymphography (medical imaging procedure) to test how well your lymphatic system is working in certain parts of your body. It is a blue dye that works by staining the lymph nodes and lymph vessels. This creates a contrast between the lymph nodes and vessels and helps your doctor check for serious medical problems such as lymphedema, chyluria (lymph in the urine), chylous ascites (lymph in the stomach), chylothorax (lymph in the chest), cancer of the lymph nodes, or other problems of the lymphatic system.

This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.
