BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Superficial lymph nodes in lymphoma management are usually evaluated by physical examination. However the accuracy of this assessment has not been thoroughly tested and so it remains debated whether physical examination can meet the international requirements for clinical evaluation and response assessment. DESIGN AND METHODS Palpatory size estimates of lymph nodes in 97 lymphoma patients were separately compared with ultrasonographic (US) measurements in cervical… CONTINUE READING
