During the 36<sup>th</sup> ESTRO conference an attempt was made to determine which therapy is the best for patients suffering from this disease. Particular attention has been paid to the correct determination of the severity of the disease - according to the European Association of Urology (EAU) - which is the basis to treat patients in a proper way. The attention was also paid to the use of hypofractionaction and spacers used to healthy tissues protection.</span></pre> <p>&nbsp;</p> Monika Włodek Copyright (c) 2020 Letters in Oncology Science http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://journals.wco.pl/los/article/view/145 Wed, 30 Sep 2020 07:22:00 +0200 The utility of the PET/CT method in Hodking’s lymphoma diagnosis https://journals.wco.pl/los/article/view/178 <p>Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) is one of the most common malignancies in young adults. The method of choice in the HL detection and staging is the positron emission tomography/computed tomography using the radiopharmaceutical <br> <sup>18</sup>F-flurodeoxyglucose (<sup>18</sup>F-FDG PET/CT) examination. The <sup>18</sup>F-FDG PET/CT study has been considered useful in the evaluation of the treatment effectiveness. The HL therapy aims to cure the disease and ensure the lowest toxicity possible, thus, the detailed diagnostic management using advanced methods of imaging seems to be of value.</p> Roksana Zając, Agata Karolina Pietrzak, Witold Cholewiński Copyright (c) 2020 Letters in Oncology Science http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://journals.wco.pl/los/article/view/178 Tue, 22 Sep 2020 07:54:31 +0200
