|FDG-PET scanning in extranodal marginal zone mucosa-associated lympoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma.|
The SUVmax of MALT was >1.5 at 79 sites (Sensiyivity 96.3%).
We identified FDG avidity in 71.4% of extra-nodal MALT lymphoma but in 50.0% of orbital MALT. Two patients with bone marrow invasion were understaged.
However, these results suggested that PET is a useful tool with which to stage, restage after therapy, or monitor disease in patients with extra- nodal MALT lymphoma.
