Summary

The purpose of this study is to see if Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging with a radioactive form of the hormone progesterone called FFNP will give the same results as hormone receptor testing already performed on tissue used to diagnose breast cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging services offered to consumers outside of the patient-physician relationship.

The testing of materials and devices, especially those used for PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS; SUTURES; TISSUE ADHESIVES; etc., for hardness, strength, durability, safety, efficacy, and biocompatibility.

Assessments aimed at determining agreement in diagnostic test results among laboratories. Identical survey samples are distributed to participating laboratories, with results stratified according to testing methodologies.

Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.

Laboratory and other services provided to patients at the bedside. These include diagnostic and laboratory testing using automated information entry.
