In imaging aggressive lymphoma and Hodgkin disease patients before therapy, fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) has significantly higher site and patient sensitivity than Ga-67 scintigraphy (100% vs. 71.5% and 100% vs. 80.3%, respectively). The change in disease stage by FDG-PET may result in a change in therapy strategy.
