Role of 18F-FDG PET-CT for evaluating the response to reduced-intensity conditioning allogeneic transplant in heavily pre-treated patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia: preliminary results in nine patients.
Our preliminary data, although in a small series of CLL patients, suggest that the metabolic findings revealed at first PET-CT after transplant seem to predict the patient outcome and to assess the metabolic disease status earlier than clinical evaluation by standard criteria. PET-CT performed during follow-up may be useful to early detect disease progression.
