Abstract Liver biopsy is an invasive diagnostic method for detecting liver involvement (LI) in Hodgkin's disease (HD). The aim of this retrospective study was to determine and evaluate a method for restricting liver biopsy to a subset of patients. Between 1988 and 1994, a total of 2016 patients with HD were treated within the HD4–6 study protocol of the German Hodgkin's Lymphoma Study Group (GHSG). We investigated the predictive power of abdominal ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT… CONTINUE READING
