ABSTRACT

Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is useful in staging of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), for early response – adapted therapy and choosing an individualized therapy, and is useful in determination of disease extent in relapsed and refractory Hodgkin lymphoma. Interim PET using 2-(18) fluoro-2-deoxyglucose(FDG) and low dose CT performed in one scanning session (FDG-PET/ CT) helps to predict outcome in Hodgkin lymphoma and to asses therapeutic stratification.

Keywords: PET/CT, Hodgkin lymphoma, stage, response to treatment
