UNLABELLED This study assessed the diagnostic accuracy of whole-body PET on a patient and lesion basis using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) for the detection of tumor foci in patients with suspected recurrent or metastatic lesions of breast carcinoma. METHODS Whole-body FDG-PET imaging was performed on 57 patients with a previous history of breast carcinoma who were referred for a clinical suspicion of disease recurrence. Whole-body PET images were scored from 1 (definitely negative) to 5… CONTINUE READING
