In Hodgkin’s disease, upwards of 85 % of patients have intrathoracic involvement on CT, compared with approximately 50 % with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma [9, 10]. Hodgkin’s disease tends to spread contiguously between lymph node groups, while non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma more frequently involves atypical lymph node sites, such as posterior mediastinal and anterior diaphragmatic nodes [9, 10]. a b Fig. 29 (a, b) Axial PET scan of the thorax shows FDG avid uptake by mediastinal lymph nodes in a case of lymphoma (green) a b Fig.
