Summary Drawing on an extensive series of cases, this book describes and illustrates in detail the FDG-PET/CT appearances of the most common lymphomas in both adults and children, covering presentations at various anatomic sites. In addition, all other aspects of the current application of FDG-PET/CT in the evaluation and management of patients with malignant lymphomas are described. Full explanations are provided of the potential benefits and limitations of advanced PET/CT techniques and technologies that support novel chemotherapy and radiotherapy approaches in the treatment of lymphoma, and particular attention is paid to the major challenge of incorporating progress in quantitative imaging technology into radiotherapy treatment planning, guidance, and monitoring. This clinical case-based atlas will be an invaluable tool for radiologists, hematologists, and clinical oncologists
