Abstract

Aim: The aim of this paper was to assess the prognostic role of pretherapy partial volume corrected (PVC) 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose mean standardized uptake value (SUV) in breast cancer (BC). Methods. Forty oncological patients, BC diagnosed by biopsy, with breast tumor mass diameter >1 cm measured to the mammography, designed for surgical intervention, underwent a pretherapy semi-quantitative 18F-FDG positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) whole-body study for tumor staging. Mean Body-Weight Standardized Uptake Value with Correction for Partial Volume effect (PVC-SUVBW-mean) was calculated in all mammary detected lesions. Excised tissues from primitive BC were sectioned and classified according to the WHO guidelines, evaluating biological features. Univariate (Mann-Withney/Kruskal-Wallis) and multivariate (linear regression, hierarchical clustering) statistical tests were performed between PVC-SUVBW-mean and biological indexes. ROC analysis was performed. PVC-SUVBW-mean thresholds were derived allowing to distinguish groups of BC patients with different biological characteristics. Specificity and Sensitivity were also calculated. Results: Statistical and multiple correlations between pretherapy 18F-FDG PET PVC-SUVBW-mean and histological type, grade, ER/PgR hormone receptors and Mib-1 cellular proliferation index were found. In our samples, PVC-SUVBW-mean BW-mean 18F-FDG PET PVC-SU-VBW-mean measurement correlates with prognostic factors in BC and could be used to stratify patients before intervention.
