3D Prostate Gland Uptake of 18F Choline PET CT - Association with Overall Survival in Patients with Hormone-naive Prostate Cancer - May Sadik

Details
Dr. May Sadik presents data from the SNMMI meeting highlighting a retrospective study in 45 patients with hormone naïve prostate cancer. The objective was to develop a completely automated method to quantify prostate gland update of 18F-choline in PET/CT images. The hope is that these preliminary data will lead to a better understanding of the relationship between this measure, the clinical data a...

Introducing TIN 117m for Convention Electron Therapy of mCRPC - Suresh Srivastava

Details
Suresh C. Srivastava presents the unique opportunities and future for nuclear medicine, including theragnostic radiopharmaceuticals for molecular imaging plus therapy and getting closer to personalized medicine, selection criteria, production, and the nuclear, physical, and chemical properties of certain dual-purpose radionuclides, including those that are currently being used, or studied and eval...

18F Fluorocholine PET-Whole Body MR in the Staging of High Risk Prostate Cancer - Ur Metser

Details
Ur Metser a study that was conducted to determine whether integrated 18F-fluorocholine (FCH) PET whole-body MRI (PET/WBMRI) depicts lymph node and distant metastases in patients with high-risk prostate cancer more frequently than does conventional staging. Biography: Ur Metser, MD, FRCPC, Joint Department of Medical Imaging, the University of Toronto Related Content: 18F-Fluorocholine PET Whole-Bo...

68Ga PSMA 11 PET MRI in Intermediate and High Risk Prostate Cancer - Claudia Zacharias

Details
Claudia Zacharias presents Gallium 6 PSMA-11 PET/MR Imaging in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Intermediate- or High-Risk Prostate Cancer, a pilot study evaluating the detection rate for the initial diagnosis of prostate cancer and the metastatic spread for patients in the intermediate and high-risk prostate cancer risk category using 68 Ga-PSMA-11 PET/MR. She reviews the potential role of 68 Ga-PSM...

Incremental Value of 11C Acetate Over 68Ga-PSMA PET CT for Prostate Cancer Patients - Sirong Chen

Details
The 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT has a high clinical impact for preoperative staging, restaging biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy, and treatment monitoring. Dr. Chen highlights the details of this trial with two objectives. They assessed 68 Ga-PSMA PET/CT in primary prostate cancer with different clinical risks and further studied the inclusion of 11 C-Acetate PET/CT to see if there was an in...

Performance of 68Ga PSMA PET CT to Detect Prostate Cancer and Comparison with 18F Choline PET CT - Manuela Hoffmann

Details
Radiolabeled prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) has proven as a highly accurate method to detect recurrences and metastases of prostate cancer, but there are only sparse data about its diagnostic performance in primary prostate cancer. Manuela Hoffman presents a retrospective study of the diagnostic performance of 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT to detect significant prostate cancer in comparison with 18F...

Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutic Aspect of PSMA in Prostate Cancer by Michael Hofman

Details
Michael Hofman discusses with Alicia Morgans both the diagnostic and therapeutic aspect of prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) in prostate cancer. The sensitivity and specificity of the PSMA PET may offer relevant clinical advantages in the diagnosis of prostate cancer while the physical properties of Lutetium 177 may provide advantages therapeutically. Biographies: Michael Hofman, MBBS (Hon...

A Review of Imaging Modalities in Prostate Cancer - Peter Pinto

Details
(Length of Interview: 17 min) Peter Pinto highlights the paradigm shift to the use of new imaging technology for a more accurate diagnosis of prostate cancer. Targeted MRI/Ultrasound (MR/US) guided biopsy vs TRUS biopsy, full body imaging options such as PET, and Axumin® (fluciclovine F 18) as a staging tool, with mention of metabolic and focal imaging are part of this comprehensive interview. As...

Details
(Length of Presentation: 8 min) This presentation represents a study performed to assess if [18F]FDHT PET/CT could be a valuable imaging biomarker in patients with prostate cancer. Biographies: Gem Kramer, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine VU University Medical Center Amsterdam the Netherlands Read the Full Video Transcript {article title="assessment-of-simplified-methods-for-quantification-of-18f-fd...

PSMA-Ligand Uptake in Cervical, Coeliac and Sacral Ganglia as a Pitfall for Lymph Node Metastases in Prostate Cancer Imaging - Christoph Rischpler

Details
( Length of Presentation 7 minutes) Christoph Rischpler presents a study aimed at investigating the PSMA-ligand uptake in PET in cervical, coeliac and sacral ganglia as a pitfall for lymph node metastases in prostate cancer imaging. This patient population consisted of 308 randomly selected patients who underwent Gallium 68 PSMA-PET between October 2012 and March 2014. For image analysis, they det...
