Mediastinal Lymphoma

  • Rajesh GuptaEmail author


The mediastinum is a common location for lymphoma to manifest and can present as part of disseminated disease or rarely as the site of primary involvement. PET/MR imaging is useful in evaluating the extent of mediastinal lymphoma, nodal spread, and extranodal disease, especially bone marrow involvement which is often occult on CT or radiography.
