Brief Summary:
Breast cancer can metastasize to the bones, which leads to another treatment if bone metastases are detected. The purpose of the study is to determine, if fluoride PET/CT is superior to bone scintigraphy with technetium. On the other side, the investigators would like to see if FDG-PET/CT is a reliable alternative to dedicated bone imaging to detect bone metastases in patients with breast cancer.
