    Abstract

    Is this abstract good ?

    Abstract
    Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET) is normally used to stage and monitor response to therapy in Hodgkin’s disease patients. A literature review of published articles pertaining to Hodgkin’s disease and FDG-PET imaging was conducted. The objective of this review was to determine the role of FDG-PET in the diagnosis and treatment of Hodgkin’s disease. Articles were selected based on their abstracts .The literature review clearly demonstrated the importance of the use of FDG-PET in the staging and monitoring of Hodgkin disease. FDG-PET definitely plays a very important role in the diagnosis and treatment of Hodgkin’s disease.

    "Good"? In terms of grammar, yes. But in terms of "Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography", I'll pass.

    Articles were selected based on their abstracts.
    This doesn't say anything on how the articles were selected.
