For the diagnosis and management of lymphoma
Australian Government
eBook Edition: 2006

These guidelines emphasise the need for appropriate biopsy techniques to allow accurate diagnosis and subtyping according to the WHO scheme. Technical advances, particularly in molecular biology, will further refine diagnosis and generate prognostic information. These advances will allow treatment to be more tailored to individuals. In all types of lymphoma staging, using appropriate radiological techniques further refines prognosis and treatment selection. Emerging data from PET scanning offer
additional promise. (From Author)
