Positron emission tomography remains gold standard imaging for initial investigation and monitoring treatment response in paediatric lymphoma despite associated radiation exposure risk factors. Whole body MRI (WBMRI) provides a non-ionising alternative imaging modality for assessment of this group of patients. Anatomical and functional imaging such as diffusion weighted imaging can be implemented in WBMRI protocols for a comprehensive assessment of different aspects of suspected malignancy. In this work we investigated the diagnostic performance of whole body anatomical and functional imaging compared to reference standard PET-CT.
