Abstract

ObjectiveThe purpose of this article is to provide a comprehensive review of the role of imaging modalities other than PET-CT in the management of Hodgkin lymphoma HL. PET-CT is the imaging modality of choice in the management of Hodgkin’s lymphoma HL. However, imaging modalities other than PET-CT such as plain radiographs, ultrasound, CT, MRI and nuclear imaging can help in various stages of clinical management of HL, including the initial workup and post-treatment surveillance. Both CT and MRI help in detecting recurrences, treatment-related pulmonary, cardiovascular and abdominal complications as well as second malignancies. Familiarity with expected post-treatment changes and complications on surveillance images can help radiologists guide patient management. The purpose of this article is to provide a comprehensive review of the role of imaging modalities other than PET-CT in the management of Hodgkin lymphoma HL.

Main Messages• Surveillance of HL patients is usually performed with plain radiographs and CT.

• Follow-up imaging can depict normal post-treatment changes or treatment-related complications.

• Imaging is important for the timely detection of second malignancies in HL patients.
