Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Mantle irradiation
    Limited to above the diaphragm
Detailed Description:
  • Eligble patients will receive a course of radiation therapy directed to above the diaphragm only.
  • Patients would have bloodwork and chest x-rays performed 4 times per year for the first two years, 3 times per year for the third year, and 2 times per year for the fourth and fifth years. After five years, yearly check-ups are performed.
  • In addition to the above follow-up, patients will receive, once or twice a year for the first 5 years, an abdominal-pelvic CT scan and/or gallium scan.
