OBJECTIVE Patients diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) have generally poor prognosis, but a minority have a longer survival. There are no markers to identify this group and no generally established prognostic index for MCL. Our objective was to assess the prognostic value of the staging FDG PET/computed tomography (CT) scan. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed initial scans performed at three institutions on biopsy-proven, cyclin D (+) MCL patients. The association of the SUVmax of the… CONTINUE READING
