LEFT side drains majority of the body Remember: Left side of heart is bigger, duct on LEFT drains more body area--throacic duct.

R Lymphatic Duct - drains R upper limb, R side of the head & thorax. The larger Thoracic Duct, runs superiorly, receives from the L side of the Thorax, L Upper Limb & L side of the Head. Arises anterior to the 1st 2 lumbar vertebrae as an enlarged sac, the Cisterna Chyli, collects lymph from 2 Lumbar Trunks that drain Lower Limbs & Intestinal Trunk that drains Digestive Organs. Ducts empty Nto venous circulation @ the jnction of the internal jugular & subclavian vein on its own side of the…

Lymph drainage along the length of the mucosa. ... Efferent lymph from the caudal lymph node flows into the ileac lymph node and subsequently to the lumbar nodes. The thoracic duct originates in the cisterna chyli — a dilated sac that collects lymph from the intestinal trunk and lumbar nodes — and drains into the blood circulation at the junction of the left subclavian vein and left jugular vein....

"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."
