  • Optimization of labeling PSMAHBED with 68Ga and its quality control systems.

    Radiolabeling of the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) inhibitor, Glu-NH-CO-NH-Lys (Ahx), using the (68)Ga chelator HBED-CC (PSMAHBED) allows imaging of lesions of prostate cancer due to the high expression of PSMA in prostate carcinoma cells as well as bone metastases and lymph nodes related to the disease.

  • Rare Sites of Metastases in Prostate Cancer Detected on Ga-68 PSMA PET/CT Scan-A Case Series.

    Ga-68 labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) whole body PET/CT scan is a novel upcoming modality for the evaluation of prostate cancer. We present three cases of prostate cancer showing rare sites of metastases like brain, penis, and liver detected on Ga-68 PSMA PET/CT scan thus emphasizing its role in lesion detection and staging.
