Brief Summary:
The purpose: To investigate the diagnostic accuracy of 18F-FLT PET for the suspicious lesions on mammograms and ultrasound.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Breast Neoplasms Drug: 18F-FLT Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
  1. 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.
  2. To evaluate whether 18F-FLT PET is a cost-effective imaging modality for breast cancer diagnosis.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 70 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Use of 18F-FLT Positron Emission Tomography to Evaluate the Suspicious Findings on Mammography and Breast Ultrasound: A Pilot Study
Study Start Date : August 2010

Arm Intervention/treatment
18F-FLT
18F-FLT PET for Suspicious Findings on Mammography and Breast Ultrasound.
Drug: 18F-FLT
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




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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. ]
