Özet

Minimizing side effects by using response-adopted therapy strategies plays an important role in the management of pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma (HL); however, the criteria for the definition of adequate or inadequate response are controversial. The aim of this study is to compare different methods of interpretation of F-18-FDG-PET/CT (PET) in the prediction of disease outcome in order to determine the optimum method in this regard.
