Andrew D. Zelenetz, MD, PhD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the role of minimal residual disease evaluation in the treatment of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, techniques used to predict relapse such as immunosequencing and CAPP-Sequencing, and whether such assays could replace the use of imaging with its attendant radiation exposure.
