Abstract

We report a case study demonstrating the value of prone positioning in positron emission tomography (PET) of a woman with diagnosed breast cancer (BC) addressed to lumpectomy. Surgeon required 18F-fluorodeoxiglucose (18F-FDG) PET study for staging and assessment of lymphnode involvement/metastasis prior to lumpectomy: a whole-body supine study and a prone acquisition of breast. Supine study revealed one lesion, while prone study revealed two lesions. Prone PET findings changed diagnosis and therapeutic intervention for patient who was subsequently subjected to quadrantectomy.
