Positron emission tomography with 2-deoxy-2-[fluorine-18]fluoro- D-glucose (18F-FDG-PET) has an important role in the management of lymphoma, but it is important to keep in mind that not only lymphoma but also a number of other pathologic and non-pathologic processes can cause increased tissue FDG uptake.
