"Recent advances in ultrasound imaging allow visualization of the cervical part of the thoracic duct.  Ultrasound imaging also allows visualization of the local anatomy of the thoracic duct and its relation to adjacent tissue and vessels, making it possible to detect disturbances in the movement of the chyle from the duct to the vein and functional abnormalities of the valves."
