  6. Which organ will take over and assume the spleen's function if the spleen is removed

    Per Tracey memorize this
    • Ann Arbor- It is divided up into A and B groups
    • A=lack of symptoms
    • B= symptoms
    • Stage 1-involvement of a single lymph node region excluding liver and bone marrow
    • Stage 2- involvement of 2 or more lymph node regions on the SAME side of the diaphragm.
    • Stage 3- Involvement of lymph node regions on both sides of the diaphragm which also may include the spleen
    • Stage 4- Multiple or disseminated foci or a single liver or bone marrow nodule
  13. How is Hodgkins typically treated
    Chemo and sometimes mixed with radiation
  14. What are the typical chemo drugs for Hodgkin's Lymphoma

    • Bleomycin
    • Vinblastine

  15. How is the mantle field treated
    • AP/PA
    • it includes all major lymph nodes above the diaphragm.
    • Superior border- inferior portion of mandible
    • Inferior border- insertion of the diaphragm
    • Laterally-cover the axillary nodes
  16. What do you try to block with treating with a mantle field
    Block as much lung as possible, the larynx, and humeral heads and block heart around 30GY
