Quantitative or semi-quantitative analysis of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG PET) has been reported to correlate with the clinical and pathological response of tumors to preoperative treatment. This study was conceived to evaluate the correlation between hybrid (18)F-FDG PET/CT and apoptosis in breast cancer after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Three cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy were given to forty-five patients with primary breast cancer proven by core… CONTINUE READING
