|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Breast Neoplasms||Drug: 18F-FLT|
- To investigate the diagnostic accuracy of 18F-FLT PET for the suspicious lesions on mammograms and ultrasound, using the pathologic result of biopsy as gold standard, and to determine whether 18F-FLT PET can increase the specificity in breast lesion diagnosis and thus reduce the unnecessary biopsy.
- To evaluate whether 18F-FLT PET is a cost-effective imaging modality for breast cancer diagnosis.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|

18F-FLT PET for Suspicious Findings on Mammography and Breast Ultrasound.
0.07 mCi/kg of 18F-FDG will be injected intravenously. The data acquisition will be started at 90 minutes after the injection using 2-D acquisition from a GE DISCOVERY ST PET/CT scanner (GE Medical Systems, Milwaukee, WI).
Other Name: FLT
- To investigate the diagnostic accuracy of 18F-FLT PET for the suspicious lesions on mammograms and ultrasound, using the pathologic result of biopsy as gold standard. [ Time Frame: The biopsy procedures will be scheduled as soon as possible and should be finished within 2 months after 18F-FLT PET. ]
