Insights on Nuclear Imaging for Prostate Cancer- Stefano Fanti

Stefano Fanti reviews the consensus paper on nuclear imaging for prostate cancer which was recently published in Lancet Oncology in December 2018. PSMA PET should be offered early in biochemical recurrence as it is the most sensitive and the EAU has incorporated PSMA PET into their guidelines as well, recommending PSMA PET for PSA >0.2. Stefano and Alicia discuss the various PSMA technologies and...

Incorporate Next Generation Imaging Tools Into Clinical Practice - Piet Ost

Piet Ost shares details of his recent presentation focusing on biochemical recurrent prostate cancer, specifically in the recurrent setting, and answering the question such as should we be investing in this novel imaging for all patients or should we dial back a bit and only have that for selected patients? Who should get this imaging? He expressed his intent to try to convince people to think bef...

The Future of Advanced Prostate Cancer Imaging Presentation - Stefano Fanti

Stefano Fanti presents his point of view on the future of prostate cancer imaging at the Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC 2019). He shares his thoughts on the use of conventional imaging such as CT and bone scan and why they should be regarded as obsolete, and why novel imaging such as PET PSMA and MRI should be incorporated into practice immediately. Dr. Fanti believes that th...

18F-fluciclovine PET/CT in Patients with Suspected Recurrent Prostate Cancer - Bital Savir-Baruch

Phillip Koo welcomes Bital Savir-Baruch who is presenting a review of prostate cancer imaging with 18F-FACBC fluciclovine (Axumin®) in men with suspected prostate cancer recurrence. Dr. Baruch reviews the benefits of this technology including earlier detection of recurrent disease as compared to conventional imaging, inability of the tracer to be metabolized and the slow urinary excretion. While d...

Disruptive Technologies in Radiology & Nuclear Medicine - Phillip Koo

Phillip Koo and Alicia Morgans discuss disruptive changes impacting clinical practice. Clearly, medical practice disruptions occur more incrementally than when we think of what this means in consumer-based areas and yet each day new data from key clinical trials has the potential to shake up what is viewed-as the current standard of care. New data is challenging radiology and nuclear medicine as w...

Advancements in PSMA PET/CT Imaging - Phil Koo and Jeremie Calais

SpaceOAR® Hydrogel Procedure Demonstration- Juan Montoya

(Length of Presentation: 10 min) Juan Montoya, Urologist, and President of the Urology Center of Colorado demonstrates the application technique for SpaceOAR® Hydrogel. A temporary space which separates the prostate from the rectum. With this separation, the volume of normal tissue exposed to the radiation is greatly reduced, potentially dramatically lowering the complications related to radiother...
