Specificity of (68)Ga-PSMA PET/CT for Prostate Cancer - Myths and Reality

68Ga-PSMA ligand PET/CT for imaging prostate cancer is a novel imaging technique, which is rapidly gaining popularity. Sufficient evidence has been accumulated in literature regarding the usefulness of (68)Ga-PSMA PET/CT in prostate cancer. Recently literature regarding the localization of (68)Ga-PSMA PET/CT imaging in non-prostatic malignancies is also published, thus questioning the specificity of the tracer with regards to prostate cancer. This commentary tries to address the issue of specificity of 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT and its relevance in imaging prostate cancer.
