Italian researchers found that dual-time-point F-18 FDG-PET/CT scans in the prone position offer higher accuracy, sensitivity and specificity than single-time-point FDG-PET/CT scans in detecting malignant lesions in patients with dense breasts. For lesions smaller than 10 mm, contrast-enhanced breast MRI is preferred over FDG-PET/CT, which offers limited sensitivity.
