Exciting New PET Scan Study for Breast Cancer
Patients need to be postmenopausal, have a recent diagnosis of breast cancer, have NOT yet had surgery, and to be naive to systemic therapies. The commitment is a single 8-9 hour day. A limo will drive the patient to and from the City (the Cornell PET facility on East 70th street or so) with door to door service. She will undergo 2 PET scans with radiolabelled vorozole (our aromatase inhibitor), before and after a dose of unlabelled oral letrozole (Femara).

Lunch is provided and she may bring a companion for the day. She receives $200 compensation for her time. If interested,
