Objectives: To investigate whether additional imaging in a prone position has any value to the supine whole-body''fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) images by comparing the visual and quantitative data about a local disease in the breast and axilla for the initial staging of breast cancer (BC).
