Authors: Rutherford SC Abstract Although the role of imaging in the management of most lymphomas is well established at baseline, during treatment, and following treatment, surveillance imaging after complete response remains controversial despite the numerous studies that have investigated follow-up computed tomography, positron emission tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging over the past 20 years. Although robust data do not support an impact of this strategy on survival in Hodgkin lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, or follicular lymphoma, many patients continue to undergo serial imaging studies. The r...

A 44 ‐year‐old man was referred to our hospital after an anterior mediastinal tumor was noted on computed tomography during follow‐up observation after left testicular seminoma resection. Chest computed tomography revealed an enhanced mass measuring 33 x 16 x 15 mm at the anterior mediastinum. Ches t magnetic resonance imaging revealed high signal intensity on T2‐weighted imaging, and F18 fluorodeoxyglucose‐positron emission tomography showed a maximum standardized uptake of 12.45. Laboratory tests revealed no elevated tumor markers, except for mildly elevated interleukin‐2. Based on these results, compl...

Conclusion:These results indicate that routine image surveillance in DLBCL patients during their first CR does not improve OS and EFS. However, B symptoms at first diagnosis was a significant factor for OS in both the symptom and imaging group, Patients with B symptoms at diagnosis might receive a benefit of image surveillance.DisclosuresNishimura: Chugai pharmaceutical inc, Roche: Other: commissioned work.

This study reports a case of ALCL with multiple extranodal involvement, especially the whole body skeletal muscles, with the aim to share the imaging features of the ALCL including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (18F-FDG PET-CT). Patient concerns: A 54-year-old female patient presented with two-month history of bilateral shoulder pain, which had exacerbated for 6 days prior to admission. MRI scans revealed multiple hyperintense on T2-weighted image (T2WI) and marked inhomogenous diffuse or rim enhancement masses in shoulder muscles. The probab...

es EF Abstract Breast metastases from extramammary cancers are rare and usually related to poor prognosis. The extramammary tumors most frequently exhibiting breast metastases are melanoma, lymphomas, ovarian cancer, lung, neuroendocrine tumors, and sarcomas. Due to the lack of reliable and specific clinical or radiological signs for the diagnosis of breast metastases, a combination of techniques is needed to differentiate these lesions from primary breast carcinoma or even benign breast lesions. Multiple imaging methods may be used to evaluate these patients, including mammography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance ...

The Oncology Grand Rounds series is designed to place original reports published in the Journal into clinical context. A case presentation is followed by a description of diagnostic and management challenges, a review of the relevant literature, and a summary of the authors’ suggested management approaches. The goal of this series is to help readers better understand how to apply the results of key studies, including those published in Journal of Clinical Oncology, to patients seen in their own clinical practice. A 54-year-old man with a former 15-pack-year smoking history presents with cough and dyspnea. Initial wor...

1887Objectives Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) and 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is increasingly recognized as important for assessing tumor malignancy in oncology. The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measured by DWI and the standardized uptake value (SUV) from 18F-FDG PET have similar clinical applications. Results from validation studies have so far been conflicting with some studies confirming a good correlation between ADC and SUV and others presenting negative results. The purpose of this study was to assess the correlation between...

Primary ovarian lymphoma presents as mass in the ovary with chronic symptoms; an acute presentation has not been described previously. A 75-year-old female presented with acute abdomen and features of peritonism. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated large mass in left ovary along with infiltration of adjacent sigmoid colon ...
