The Evolution of Lymphoma-Based Oncology Response Criteria

A wide-range of cancer types have been identified as liquid tumors that occur in the blood, bone marrow and lymph nodes. One such type, Lymphoma, is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the body's germ-fighting network. Reproducible and time-efficient criteria based on FDG-PET imaging has led to improved clinical outcomes in the development of new cancer therapies for FDG-avid lymphoma.

During this webinar the panel of experts will review:

  • Evolution of the imaging-based response criteria for lymphomas
  • Challenges and pitfalls to develop a standardized operational reader workflow for clinical trials
  • Proposed operational approach and recommendations for radiologists using lymphoma response assessment criteria
