The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
New York University School of Medicine
  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.

Condition Intervention
Breast Cancer Procedure: PET/MRI

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Initial Assessment of 18FDG-PET/MRI in Determining the Extent of Systemic Disease in Breast Cancer Patients.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Any patient with a history or breast cancer undergoing PET/CT either for initial staging or for disease surveillance

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. Patients with glomerular filtration rate (GFR) < 15 ml/min/1.73m2 or who are on dialysis will be excluded from the study.
