The enumeration of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) is used to optimize treatment for patients with metastatic breast cancer. Prospective clinical trials demonstrate clinical utility when CTC enumeration is performed in conjunction with radiographic imaging and clinical evaluations. Refinements of existing technologies - or the development of improved technologies - are needed in order to increase the detection threshold of CTCs and to allow for further phenotypic and genotypic characterization of the collected cells. These advances may translate into use of CTC analysis in earlier stages of breast cancer for diagnosis and/or more effective clinical management.
