International guidelines support performing baseline positron emission tomography (PET) in lymphoma. Metabolic tumor volume (MTV) measurement has been proposed as a good measurement of disease burden. We investigated if MTV at baseline PET can be predictive of complete response (CR) to first line standard chemotherapy in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and in follicular lymphoma (FL) grade 3b.

Abstract

International guidelines support performing baseline positron emission tomography (PET) in lymphoma. Metabolic tumor volume (MTV) measurement has been proposed as a good measurement of disease burden. We investigated if MTV at baseline PET can be predictive of complete response (CR) to first line standard chemotherapy in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and in follicular lymphoma (FL) grade 3b.
