  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the performance of 18F-FDG PET/CT in the detection of primary breast cancer, and the staging of regional lymph nodes.
  • Three nuclear medicine physicians analyzed the image and made the diagnosis.
  • 32 breast lesions were evaluated by histology, revealing 25 breast carcinomas and 7 benign pathological changes.
  • 23 patients had histological diagnosis of the breast tumor and regional lymph nodes.
  • 10 patients were proved to have lymph node metastasis, and PET/CT got a sensitivity of 60.0%.
  • But the accuracy of FDG PET/CT seems to be not high enough to identify patients who might avoid axillary lymph nodes dissection.
  • The high cost and the space resolution limit its use as a routine diagnostic method of breast cancer.
