Brief Summary:
This is a research study of a novel, "breast-dedicated" positron emission tomography (PET) camera with 1 millimeter spatial resolution. The main goal of the study is for the personnel to understand practical and logistical issues with using the camera in the clinic

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Breast Cancer Drug: 18F-FDG Device: Breast-dedicated PET camera Early Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Primary Objective To obtain initial experience using the novel, breast-dedicated PET camera design in the breast imaging clinic.

Secondary Objectives To understand, given the 10-fold higher sensitivity of this novel camera, how low we can go with administered tracer dose, and, given the >100-fold better volumetric spatial resolution, understand the achievable image quality.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 18-F FDG Study using Breast-Dedicated PET Camera
Breast-Dedicated PET Camera will be used with standard PET 18-F FDG tracer dose
Drug: 18F-FDG
Participant will be injected IV (intravenously) with 10 ± 2 mCi of 18F-FDG.
Other Names:
  • 18F-fluorodeoxiglucose
  • 18F-FDG radiotracer

Device: Breast-dedicated PET camera
Breast-dedicated PET camera designed by Stanford satellite radiochemistry facility

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Image quality with the breast-dedicated PET camera [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Feasibility of the pilot breast-dedicated PET camera will be assessed on the basis of whether acceptable images are obtained. Images will be assessed and graded as 1 of 3 quality ratings: excellent, good, and poor. The outcome will be reported as the number of images that are excellent, good, and poor, a number without dispersion.
