Ga-68 PSMA Lyophilized Ready to Use Kit for Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer by PET/CT - Stephan Maus

October 16, 2017

(Length of lecture ~ 13 minutes)

Stephan Maus discusses Ga-68 labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) whole body PET/CT scan cold kit for the detection of prostate cancer lesions. Specifically, cold kit procedures have been under intense investigation due to their shortened synthesis times, reduced error rates and eliminating expensive hardware, making it a reliable alternative. This presentation outlines the researcher's initial treatment experience of a 77-year old patient with prostate cancer using [68Ga]HBED-CC-PSMA produced with a room temperature cold kit methodology.
