Whole Body Functional and Anatomical MRI: Accuracy in Staging and Treatment Response Monitoring in Adolescent Hodgkin's Lymphoma Compared to Conventional Multimodality Imaging
The trial will be a single centre cohort study in patients newly diagnosed with Hodgkin's
lymphoma undergoing disease staging at diagnosis and initial treatment response assessment.
At each time point (initial staging and treatment response assessment) in addition to
standard imaging investigations (PET CT, Chest CT, anatomical MRI of the abdomen and pelvis
and abdominal USS), patients will undergo advanced anatomical and functional MRI sequences.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
The per site sensitivity and specificity of MRI for both nodal and extranodal sites and concordance in final disease stage with the multi-modality reference standard
The recruited patients to be followed up for 1 year
