This study will determine the correlation between the change in an immunohistochemical marker of cell proliferation (Ki-67) and the change in tumor 18F-FLT (3'-deoxy-3'[18F]-fluorothymidine) uptake in patients with breast cancer following treatment with standard of care neo-adjuvant therapy.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Comparator: 18F-FLT-Positron Emission Tomography (PET)/Computed Tomography (CT) Imaging

Usefulness of F Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography in Infective Endocarditis in Daily Practice: Individualized Analysis of Each Potential Focus of Infection: A Prospective Cohort Study.
Dedicated breast positron emission tomography (DbPET) provides detailed high-resolution images and can detect intratumoral heterogeneity using F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). We aimed to evaluate the corr...
An imaging technique that combines a POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) scanner and a CT X RAY scanner. This establishes a precise anatomic localization in the same session.
An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.
An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.
A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.
