Utility of < sup > 18 < /sup > F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET-CT scan in detecting bone marrow involvement in lymphoma

CONCLUSIONS: 18F-FDG PET/CT has a good sensitivity and NPV for detecting BMI in HL and aggressive lymphoma. The low specificity and PPV improved if marrow uptake pattern on interim or end-of-treatment 18F-FDG PET/CT scan was analyzed. In patients with HL who are staged with18F-FDG PET/CT at baseline and followed up with an interim/end-of-treatment PET/CT, baseline BMB may be avoided. For all other lymphoma subtypes, BMB may be essential if there is no marrow FDG uptake on PET/CT scan performed at baseline.PMID:35532587 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_1420_19
