Figure 1: PET/CT maximum intensity projection images for initial staging showing widespread disease involvement of lymph nodes both above and below the diaphragm (a) with splenic and marrow involvement. Fused PET/CT (b), and PET alone (c) sagittal midline sections show heterogeneous marrow involvement of the sternum, multiple vertebrae, and the pubis. The interim PET (d-f) showed significant resolution in the abnormal FDG uptake noted in the initial scan, with two foci of patchy uptake in the abdominal region localizing to lumbar vertebrae (arrows in d-f). End of therapy PET/CT (g-i) shows no significant change in tracer distribution except for the persistent heterogeneous FDG uptake (SUVmax value 3.8) in vertebrae
