68Ga-PSMA-HBED Uptake on Cervicothoracic (Stellate) Ganglia, a Common Pitfall on PET/CT.

Ga-PSMA-HBED PET/CT showed promising results in staging and restaging of prostate cancer. However, nonspecific uptake has been reported in the celiac ganglia. In this case series, we showed faint radiotracer uptake on upper thoracic region in the location of cervicothoracic (stellate) ganglia. This ganglion is located anterior to the transverse process of C7 vertebra, inferior to subclavian artery, and superior to the neck of the first rib.
