The usefulness of Tc-99m-tetrofosmin SPECT/CT in the detection of residual tumors and axillary lymph node metastases in breast cancer patients following neoadjuvant therapy.

Abstract

Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT is emerging as a useful diagnostic tool in several oncological fields. In this prospective study, we assessed the usefulness of Tc-99m-tetrofosmin SPECT/CT in the detection of both residual breast tumors and axillary lymph node metastases following neoadjuvant therapy. Thirty-seven consecutive breast… (More)
