Breast Cancer Survivors Learn about the Importance of Early Lymphedema Detection and Intervention with L-Dex Readings

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- A large number of breast cancer survivors received complimentary L-Dex readings as part of the "Know Your L-Dex" awareness campaign activities at recent Komen Race for the Cure(R) events in Houston and Dallas.

Dr. Walton Taylor, a breast surgeon at the Medical City Dallas Hospital, provided survivors with complimentary readings using an FDA-cleared L-Dex medical device developed by ImpediMed Ltd. (ASX: IPD).

L-Dex readings serve as an aid for medical professionals to clinically assess female breast cancer patients for the early signs of unilateral lymphedema of the arm (swelling that occurs in one arm following breast cancer treatment), potentially before symptoms such as heaviness or visible swelling are present.

"Lymphedema is one of the major concerns of many breast cancer survivors, and it is important that they are educated on the importance of early detection and intervention," said Dr. Taylor. "With the help of ImpediMed's L-Dex devices, medical professionals can now perform pre-operative baseline assessments and conduct ongoing surveillance for the early signs of lymphedema in patients."

"The outcomes of the 'Know Your L-Dex' activities in Texas greatly exceeded our expectations," said Greg Brown, CEO of ImpediMed. "In addition to performing the readings, Dr. Taylor answered survivors' questions about lymphedema and helped Komen Race for the Cure(R) participants to gain a better understanding of the importance of early lymphedema detection and intervention. We look forward to bringing the 'Know Your L-Dex' activities to other markets this quarter and throughout next year."
