The authors sought to evaluate whether the reacquisition of images 3 h after administration of radiotracer improves the sensitivity of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography computed tomography ([18F]-FDG PET/CT) in patients with suspicious breast lesions. Forty-eight patients with 59 breast lesions underwent an [18F]-FDG PET/CT study in the prone position with a dual-time-point acquisition performed in the early phase 1 h after FDG administration (PET-1) and in the delayed… CONTINUE READING
