Özet

Aim: To examine the value of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FOG-PET/CT) for the detection of bone metastasis in breast cancer patients and assess whether whole body bone scan (BS) with Tc-99m-methylene diphosphonate provides any additional information.
