Project Description

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and nodes that carries interstitial fluid back to the bloodstream. It is also an important element of the immune system, transporting lymphocytes and filtering pathogens.The purpose of this illustration is to provide an overview of the lymphatic system anatomy, including lymph node clusters and major organs. A left lateral view of the head shows a more detailed depiction of the cervical nodes and drainage of the thoracic duct into venous circulation.This illustration was created to supplement clinical vignette explanations for medical students studying for PANCE and other certification exams.
