Prostate Imaging Scans Using 68Ga-PSMA-11 Recommended by UCLA Researchers
Prostate cancer patients who have disease recurrence following radical prostatectomy should undergo imaging scans using the imaging agent 68Ga-PSMA-11 to guide their salvage radiotherapy, a new study suggests. The study, by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles shows that the imaging procedure effectively detects the location of recurrence at an early stage. In 19 percent of patients, the scans identified lesions that wouldn't otherwise be covered by the radiation fields. The study, “68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT Mapping of Prostate Cancer Biochemical Recurrence After Radical Prostatectomy in 270 Patients wi
