Sponsor: ImpediMed Limited
Enrolling: Female Patients Only
IRB Number: AAAQ7067

Additional Study Information: Some people who are treated for breast cancer develop swelling in their arms as a result of their treatment. This swelling is called lymphedema and it can be chronic. The purpose of this study is to see if early detection of arm swelling using a small painless device (called bioelectrical impedance), immediately followed by compression treatment, prevents continued swelling more often than the same treatment does when swelling is identified by tape measurement of the arm.
