[18F]Fluciclovine Companion Imaging Study to Radium-223 and Radiotherapy in Hormone-Naive Men With Oligometastatic Prostate Cancer to Bone (RROPE) Study

Condition: Metastatic Prostate Carcinoma, Prostate Carcinoma Metastatic in the Bone, Stage IV Prostate Cancer


  • Procedure: Computed Tomography
  • Drug: Fluciclovine F18
  • Procedure: Positron Emission Tomography

Purpose: This trial studies how well fluciclovine 18F PET/CT imaging works in assessing hormone-naive men with prostate cancer that has spread to the bone. Fluciclovine 18F is a radioactive drug used to measure tumor growth. PET/CT uses x-rays to take pictures inside the body. Comparing results of fluciclovine 18F PET/CT imaging may help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment.
