The diagnostic accuracy of fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) in staging mantle-cell lymphoma has not yet investigated. The aim of this 2-center retrospective study was to investigate the utility of 18F-FDG PET/CT in assessing nodal, splenic, bone marrow (BM), and gastrointestinal (GI) disease compared to CT, BM, and GI endoscopy; and to assess its clinical impact.
