Abstract

Two large, recently published observational studies demonstate a clear down-trend in the use of radiotherapy (RT) over the last 15 years, both in the setting of follicular and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. This change of practice might have a negative impact on clinical outcome. Even within the context of modern systemic therapy, omission of RT translates not only into a shorter progression-free survival (PFS), but also into a worse overall survival (OS). RT should therefore remain standard practice.This short review is aiming to summarize current guidelines and the best evidence available in the management of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Potentially practice changing, ongoing trials will be highlighted.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 August 2016.
All research outputs
#6,003,130
of 8,302,052 outputs
Outputs from Radiation Oncology
#747
of 1,086 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#163,952
of 251,587 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Radiation Oncology
#21
of 45 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,302,052 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,086 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.3. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 251,587 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 45 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
