Positron Emission Mammography (PEM) Flex Solo II Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scanner and Stereo Navigator Biopsy Accessory for the Diagnosis of Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:19:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate how well the Stereo Navigator Biopsy Accessory for the PEM Flex solo II PET Scanner works for performing breast biopsy on suspicious lesions. This study will also allow the doctors to describe the features of PEM detected lesions and the results obtained using the PEM guided biopsy and will compare the time it took to complete a pre-operative work up using PEM versus MRI in patients with a suspicious breast lesion resulting in cancer.

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.
