Initial Assessment of 18FDG-PET/MRIin Determining the Extent of Systemic Disease in Breast Cancer Patients

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01672021
First received: August 21, 2012
Last updated: May 15, 2014
Last verified: April 2014
  Purpose

Because MRI can provide increased brain and liver lesion detection as compared with CT, the investigators hypothesize that FDG-PET/MRI will provide concordant or improved lesion detection as compared with FDG-PET/CT in breast cancer patients at a decreased radiation dose.

-

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnant patients and patients with known contraindications for whole body MR imaging (e.g., pacemakers, recent surgery, brain vascular clips, etc.) will be excluded from the study. Patients will be screened with a questionnaire to be sure they have no medical devices that could make the procedure unsafe.
