Seminar topic: PET in hematological Malignancies:

The last fifteen years have been marked by the harmonization of interim and end-of-treatment PET/CT interpretation criteria in lymphoma (Deauville scale 2009).

Nowadays, the implementation of PET/CT guided therapeutic strategies and  the development of new prognostic biomarkers on baseline PET/CT, such as total metabolic tumor volume and tumor dissemination metrics are necessary.

It is time to propose standardized measurements of metabolic tumor burden to prepare for risk adaptation in lymphoma.

Likewise, the implications of PET imaging in multiple myeloma for treatment and response assessment will also be detailed.
