Disease assessment on an [18-F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET) scan before allogeneic stem cell transplantation was capable of predicting long-term survival in patients with recurrent and chemosensitive Hodgkin lymphoma or aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma, because the patients who had negative PET scans were at lower risk of recurrence and had better progression-free and overall survival than the patients who had positive PET scans. The predictive value of PET was independent of graft-versus-host disease and the graft-versus-lymphoma effect.
