In vivo treatment sensitivity testing with positron emission tomography/computed tomography after one cycle of chemotherapy for Hodgkin lymphoma
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
Tomography, X-Ray Computed
PET after one cycle of chemotherapy is highly prognostic in HL. No other prognostic tool identifies a group of patients with HL with a more favorable outcome than those patients with a negative PET1. In the absence of precise pretherapeutic predictive markers, PET1 is the best method for response-adapted strategies designed to select patients for less intensive treatment.
