The authors conducted a metaanalysis to evaluate the diagnostic performance of 18F-2-deoxy-2-fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in the staging of lymphoma. The findings from this study showed that FDG-PET has a high sensitivity and specificity for staging patients with lymphoma; the sensitivity appeared to be higher in patients with Hodgkin disease compared with non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients.
