Abstract

The aim of this study was to prove the diagnostic value of interim 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron-emission tomography combined with computed tomography (PET/CT) scan for predicting pathological complete response (pCR) compared to other factors in neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Twenty-seven patients with breast cancer were included in this retrospective study. They all underwent scheduled neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Patients underwent PET/CT at baseline, mid-point (interim), and preoperatively (after completion of chemotherapy). The metabolic response was calculated as follows: ΔStandardized uptake value (SUV)(%)=(1st SUV(max)-2nd SUV(max))/1st SUV(max) × 100. The change in SUVmax between baseline and interim PET/CT scans was significantly larger than between interim and preoperative PET/CT scan. An optimal cut-off ΔSUV value of 78.3% was proposed for discriminating patients with pCR from those without pCR. Metabolic CR, defined as a change of SUV(max) greater than the cut-off value, can predict pCR according to univariate analysis (p=0.012; Relative risk (RR)=25.3). Furthermore, metabolic CR was the most powerful factor for predicting pCR than other possible factors according to multivariate analysis (p=0.003). It is possible to use interim (18)F-FDG PET-CT as an effective method to predict early response in patients with breast cancer treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Copyright
