Positron emission tomography / computed tomography (PET / CT) with fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (F-18 FDG) is well established as a valuable tool in the staging and restaging of Hodgkin's and certain non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, including the assessment of response to treatment. Previously, the recommendations of the International Working Group were widely implemented. Response criteria have recently been revised by the International Harmonization Project to include new developments such as PET / CT, immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry.
