Brief Summary:
A retrospective analysis will be performed regarding the usefulness of PET/CT performed following 2 cycle of chemotherapy in evaluation of progression, free survival and overall survival of patients with aggressive non Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Condition or disease
Lymphoma; Large Cell (Diffuse) With Small Cell, Diffuse

Detailed Description:
Patients who were treated for aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma with adriamycin containing regimen, CHOP and High dose CHOP with or without rituximab were evaluated post 2 cycles of chemotherapy to rule out disease progression . Currently a retrospective evaluation of PET/CT as a predictive value for progression free survival and overall survival is evaluated
