Condition breast neoplasm
Sponsor University Hospital, Geneva
Start date November 2007
End date May 2013
Trial size 60 participants
Trial identifier NCT01432002, HUG 07-153


The purpose of the study is:

- to assess the potential benefits of 18F-[FDG] PET/CT and PET/MRI for operable breast cancer in order to define the size and location of the primary tumor, as well as axillary, supraclavicular and internal mammary lymph nodes.

- to apply the imaging results to the simulation and the radiation treatment planning and partial breast for 3-D radiation treatment and partial breast irradiation with intensity modulated radiation treatment (IMRT).
