Abstract

Positron-emission tomography with computed tomography (PET/CT) using 18F-FDG is the imaging of choice in lymphomas [1]. Almost all subtypes of lymphoma (with the exception of some low-grade NHL) show high metabolic activity and that condition makes the staging of the disease very accurate either in the detection of nodal, extranodal, or bone marrow involvement [2].
