- Breast cancer staging and in vivo imaging of HER2 receptor expression in cancer
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, and is subdivided depending on the expression of different growth factor receptors such as the estrogen receptor and the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). With a newly developed PET tracer we will measure the HER2 receptor density in breast cancer.
