BACKGROUND Positron emission tomography (PET) with 2-deoxy-2-fluoro[18F]-D-glucose (FDG) can provide quantitative information about tumor glucose metabolism. The prognostic value of this technique was evaluated for breast carcinoma patients. METHODS FDG PET was performed on 70 patients with primary breast carcinoma, and the differential absorption ratio (DAR) was calculated as an index of FDG uptake. Overall and relapse free survival curves were created by the Kaplan-Meier method, and… CONTINUE READING
