Primary brain lymphoma is an aggressive extranodal non-Hodgkin lymphoma with poor prognosis. Many possible prognostic factors are investigated with controversial results, but possible prognostic role of 18fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) features remains unclear. Our aim was to study the metabolic behavior of brain lymphoma at 18F-FDG PET/CT and the prognostic impact of qualitative and semiquantitative PET/CT parameters.

Abstract

Primary brain lymphoma is an aggressive extranodal non-Hodgkin lymphoma with poor prognosis. Many possible prognostic factors are investigated with controversial results, but possible prognostic role of 18fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) features remains unclear. Our aim was to study the metabolic behavior of brain lymphoma at 18F-FDG PET/CT and the prognostic impact of qualitative and semiquantitative PET/CT parameters.
