[Will 68Ga-PSMA PET become the New Imaging Standard for Prostate Cancer?]

This article describes the current knowledge in prostate cancer imaging with (68)Ga-PSMA PET, which achieves excellent specificities and higher sensitivities compared with standard imaging for local tumour detection as well as primary and recurrence staging. Therefore, (68)Ga-PSMA PET will probably play an increasing role for the diagnostic investigation of prostate cancer and will be more widely used in the future.
