The maximum standardized uptake values (SUV were 5.67±4.45, 5.15±4.29, and -9.30%±20.54%, respectively.
After PVC, all parameters significantly increased to 10.44±5.55, 10.23±5.77, and -1.15%±21.66%, respectively.
In addition, the number of lesions with a positive ∆%SUV is considered to be useful for standardizing dual time point FDG-PET studies in patients with breast cancer performed using different PET scanners.
This method is also expected to be useful for standardizing multicenter PET studies.

Materials and methods: One hundred and thirteen lesions from 96 breast cancer patients were examined.
FDG-PET scans were performed at both 60 and 120 minutes after FDG injection using different PET scanners.
