Abstract

To compare FDG PET/CT and bone scans for the management of young patients with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). Eighteen patients, aged 724 years, with HL received bone and PET scans within 2 weeks 11 at diagnosis and 7 at known or suspected relapse (37 scan pairs). In six patients (nine scan pairs) both studies were positive. In four patients (five scan pairs), PET showed involvement not evident on bone scan. In four patients (four scan pairs), one of the studies was equivocal and the other negative. In one patient, bone scan showed abnormal uptake in a benign lesion. In nine patients (19 scan pairs), both studies were negative. All osseous metastases identified on bone scan were present on PET. Many additional sites of bony involvement were identified on PET. The bone scan may be safely eliminated.
