"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."

Why You Must Sleep On Your Left Side (And Never On Your Right)

How does Lymph Flow 1.	Pulsing supply vessels along side the lymphatic vessels. When it pushes it—lymphatic goes up 2.	New lymph pushes old lymph 3.	Skeletal muscles that lymphatic vessels flow through and between supplies pressure to fluid 4.	Respiratory pressures – the biggest one is in your chest cavity. You exhale by increasing the pressure in your chest cavity and when you exhale you decrease the pressure in your chest cavity. This helps the thoracic duct empty and fill, respectively.
