Selected Images of Lem the Lymphoma
January 2005 – January 2010

PET / CT exam 1/13/2005:
Single coronal image through dominant tumor mass on left side of abdomen.
Tumor shows bright orange uptake of glucose
PET/CT 1/13/05 exam, coronal image through tumor




CT abdomen and thorax exams 4/27/2005:


CT Abdomen: Axial images through dominant tumor mass in left abdomen comparing 1/13/2005 and 4/27/2005
Abdomen: Axial images through dominant tumor mass in left abdomen, comparing 1/13/2005 and 4/27/2005
 
(Tumor has heavy calcification from necrosis showing as bright white blotches.)

CT Thorax: Axial images through right lower lobe lung lesion comparing 1/13/2005 and 4/27/2005.
Thorax: Axial images through right lower lobe lung lesion, comparing 1/13/2005 and 4/27/2005.

(Is this scar versus tumor in the thorax?—see below)

CT abdomen and thorax exams 2/1/2006:


CT abdomen: axial images through dominant tumor mass in left abdomen, comparing 1/13/2005, 4/27/2005, 7/27/2005, and 2/1/2006 at Level One
Axial images through dominant tumor mass in left abdomen, comparing 1/13/2005, 4/27/2005, 7/27/2005, and 2/1/2006
(Level One)

(Shows shrinkage of dominant mass and shrinkage of enlarged lymph nodes from chemotherapy from 1/13/05 to 7/27/05, but no change since 7/27/05. (The irregular bright white calcification is not expected to change.)

CT abdomen: axial images through dominant tumor mass in left abdomen, comparing 1/13/2005, 7/27/2005, and 2/1/2006 at Level Two
Axial images through dominant tumor mass in left abdomen, comparing 1/13/2005, 7/27/2005, and 2/1/2006
(Level Two)

(Level Three)

Coronal image through dominant tumor mass in left abdomen 2/1/2006
Coronal image through dominant tumor mass in left abdomen 2/1/2006

CT thorax: Axial images through right lower lobe lung lesion, comparing 1/13/2005 and 2/1/2006.
Thorax: Axial images through right lower lobe lung lesion, comparing 1/13/2005 and 2/1/2006.

(Shows possible minimal regression of lesion thickness during chemotherapy since 1/13/05,
raising the question that lesion was tumor despite former low uptake on PET.)




CT exam of chest, abdomen, and pelvis 1/25/2007:
Single coronal image through dominant tumor mass on left side of abdomen.
The partially calcified tumor shows no evidence of progression or further regression
or other significant change.
PET/CT 1/13/05 exam, coronal image through tumor




CT exam of chest, abdomen, and pelvis 1/8/2008:
Coronal images through dominant tumor mass on left side of abdomen.
The partially calcified tumor in 2008 (bottom row) shows no evidence of progression
or further regression when compared to similar images in 2006 (top row).
(This lesion was not further changed on subsequent CT scans performed on 1/13/2009 and 1/19/2010.)
