PURPOSE We aim to compare the metabolic activity by F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake across the various histologic subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in a single center, with particular interest in the natural killer (NK)-cell lymphoma subtype for which literature is scarce because of the rarity of these lymphomas in Western populations. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the FDG-avidity of pretreatment positron emission tomography-computed tomography scans of 117… CONTINUE READING
