Background: Tissue dielectric constant (TDC) and spot bioimpedance measurement (BIA) have a role in the assessment of tissue composition changes in breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL). Our aims were to determine whether TDC and spot BIA measures could detect inter-limb differences in BCRL, explore the relationship between methods, and establish the intra-rater reliability and technical error of measurement for TDC.
