We hypothesized that F-18 FDG-PET could be a useful, functional imaging modality for assessing the initial staging, response to therapy and follow-up of children diagnosed with lymphoma. To assess the role of whole-body F-18 FDG-PET imaging in patients with lymphoma as an initial staging modality and to measure its predictive value for monitoring the response to therapy and disease recurrence compared to CT and clinical follow-up studies. As part of their routine clinical care, 24 patients with… CONTINUE READING
