Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 118
Study Start Date: October 2001
Study Completion Date: February 2009
Primary Completion Date: February 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Positron Emission Tomography
Patients receive fludeoxyglucose F 18 IV. Approximately 1 hour later, patients undergo positron emission tomography imaging. Some patients may undergo a repeat scan in 4-6 months.
Procedure: positron emission tomography Procedure: radionuclide imaging Radiation: fludeoxyglucose F 18

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of fludeoxyglucose F 18 (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) as compared to conventional imaging in determining the extent of disease in women with primary or recurrent breast cancer.
  • Determine how often clinical management and operative intervention plans for patients are altered based on these FDG-PET scan findings.
  • Determine whether FDG-PET results in more accurate detection of disease in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive fludeoxyglucose F 18 IV. Approximately 1 hour later, patients undergo positron emission tomography imaging. Some patients may undergo a repeat scan in 4-6 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: (50 with primary disease and 50 with recurrent disease) will be accrued for this study within 1-2 years.
