PURPOSE To compare whole-body DWI with FDG-PET/CT in the staging of lymphoma patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-one patients, eight with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and 23 with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (18 aggressive and five indolent) underwent both whole-body DWI, whole-body MRI (T1W and T2W-STIR) and… CONTINUE READING
