PET/CT predicts early breast cancer response to chemo

April 10, 2013, Wayne Forrest, AuntMinnie staff writer reports, “By using FDG-PET/CT, physicians will be in a better position to noninvasively predict a breast cancer patient’s response to treatment after two cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, helping them decide on the next course of action, concluded a study from Germany.

Lead author Dr. Till-Alexander Heusner, from the department of diagnostic and interventional radiology at the University of Düsseldorf, presented the study’s results at this year’s European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna.”
