Insights on Nuclear Imaging for Prostate Cancer- Stefano Fanti

Stefano Fanti reviews the consensus paper on nuclear imaging for prostate cancer which was recently published in Lancet Oncology in December 2018. PSMA PET should be offered early in biochemical recurrence as it is the most sensitive and the EAU has incorporated PSMA PET into their guidelines as well, recommending PSMA PET for PSA >0.2. Stefano and Alicia discuss the various PSMA technologies and...

Incorporate Next Generation Imaging Tools Into Clinical Practice - Piet Ost

Piet Ost shares details of his recent presentation focusing on biochemical recurrent prostate cancer, specifically in the recurrent setting, and answering the question such as should we be investing in this novel imaging for all patients or should we dial back a bit and only have that for selected patients? Who should get this imaging? He expressed his intent to try to convince people to think bef...
