Pilot Breast-Dedicated PET Camera With 1 Millimeter Spatial Resolution

2019-07-17 10:05:00 | BioPortfolio


This is a research study of a novel, "breast-dedicated" positron emission tomography (PET) camera with 1 millimeter spatial resolution. The main goal of the study is for the personnel to understand practical and logistical issues with using the camera in the clinic


Primary Objective To obtain initial experience using the novel, breast-dedicated PET camera design in the breast imaging clinic.

Secondary Objectives To understand, given the 10-fold higher sensitivity of this novel camera, how low we can go with administered tracer dose, and, given the >100-fold better volumetric spatial resolution, understand the achievable image quality.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.

A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.

Tumors or cancer of the human BREAST.
