Experimental: Breast Cancer-Related Lymphedema Measurements
Absolute volume of the upper extremities will be assessed using the LymphaTech Scanner and the Perometer.
Other: Breast Cancer-Related Lymphedema Measurements
All patients will receive bilateral arm measurements using the LymphaTech Scanner and the Perometer.
- Precision and reliability [ Time Frame: 3 years ]To determine whether the LymphaTech scanner is a precise and reliable tool for measuring upper extremity volume changes in patients treated for breast
- Measurement Time [ Time Frame: 3 years ]To evaluate amount of time it takes to conduct bilateral arm measurements with both the LymphaTech Scanner and Perometer.
