Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Performance of FDG-PET for the evaluation of nodal status [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Show that the algorithm of high-definition positron emission tomography (PET) to 18Fluoro-deoxy-glucose (18FDG) is greater than a classical algorithm in the diagnosis of lymph node metastases.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Information on lymph node status in patients with breast cancer. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Show that scintigraphy performed on a FDG positron camera equipped with a reconstruction algorithm for high-definition can provide reliable information on lymph node status in patients with breast cancer and determine the minimum size of lymph node metastatic lesions.
