Accurate staging of breast carcinoma is important for determining prognosis and planning treatment of patient. Although the clinical role of PET/CT for initial staging of breast carcinoma still controversial and the guidelines recommendations haven’t been changed yet, there is robust evidence on superiority of PET/CT to conventional imaging modalities for the detection of local and distant metastases. We discuss the importance of FDG PET/CT findings, especially axillary/extra-axillary nodal and distant metastases, in different categories of breast cancer and also performance of FDG PET/CT on restaging of patients with suspected disease recurrence.
