Conclusions: In this study, the SUV of 99mTc-MDP was successfully determined using SPECT/CT. This research provides an approach that could potentially aid in the clinical quantification of radionuclide uptake in normal vertebrae for the management of breast cancer patients.

CONCLUSIONS: There is no single absolute modality for de tecting ALNMs in breast cancers to replace sentinel lymph node biopsy or axillary lymph node dissection. If ALNM is suspected based on PET/CT, axillary lymph node dissection without sentinel lymph node biopsy might be a better option because it is related to high possibilities of ALNM.

AbstractPurposePathologic complete response (pCR) to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is commonly accepted as the gold standard to assess outcome after NAC in breast cancer patients.18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) has unique value in tumor staging, predicting prognosis, and evaluating treatment response. Our aim was to determine if we could identify radiomic predictors from PET/CT in breast cancer patient therapeutic efficacy prior to NAC.MethodsThis retrospective study included 100 breast cancer patients who received NAC; there were 2210 PET/CT radiomic features extracted. Un...

This study aimed to explore the applicability of kinetic modelling and parametric image analysis for absolute quantification of68Ga-ABY-025 uptake and HER2-receptor expression and how that relates to static SUVs.MethodsDynamic68Ga-ABY-025 PET of the upper abdomen was performed 0-45  min post-injection in 16 patients with metastatic breast cancer. Five patients underwent two examinations to test reproducibility. Parametric images of tracer delivery (K1) and irreversible binding (Ki) were created with an irreversible two-tissue compartment model and Patlak graphical analysis using an image-derived input function from ...

New research shows digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) to be a more effective breast cancer diagnosis tool than digital mammography (DM), according to a study recently published inRadiology. DBT is a relatively new screening practice and was only approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2017. It uses an x-ray tube that glides in an arc-shape and uses low levels of radiation to image the breast from various angles. Up until now, research only showed us how effective the screening is in the first round of testing before detection rates are expected to escalate. Those early studies showed that DBT had higher detect...

AbstractPurposeIt is suspected that delayed surgery after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) leads to a worse outcome in breast cancer patients. We therefore evaluated possible influencing factors of the time interval between the end of NACT and surgery.MethodsAll patients receiving NACT due to newly diagnosed breast cancer from 2015 to 2017 at the Department of Gynecology, Saarland University Medical Center, were included. The time interval between end of NACT and surgery was defined as primary endpoint. Possible delaying factors were investigated: age, study participation, outpatient and inpatient presentations, implants/ex...
