Post-Chemotherapy Evaluation of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

This patient with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma had an initial PET scan performed for staging and a follow-up PET scan after chemotherapy for restaging the disease.

The initial PET scan showed extensive lymphadenopathy as well as suspicious FDG uptake in the spleen.

The follow-up study for restaging showed that the extensive lymphadenopathy had completely resolved. The uptake in the spleen was no longer identified.

Following chemotherapy PET can be a valuable tool for restaging. In this patient, PET demonstrated the interval resolution of the disease.
