This study was performed to assess the diagnostic value of PET/MR and DWI in the evaluation of nodal and extranodal lymphoma. PET/MR is an emerging hybrid technique that has already demonstrated very good results for the diagnosis of malignancies in different anatomical districts but up to now, only few data are available in the literature about its application on patients affected by lymphoma. Our initial results demonstrated that, for both nodal and extranodal disease, PET/MR is a highly promising technique and DWI confirmed to be an essential tool to improve the diagnostic work-up of this heterogeneous cancer group.
