11Cl-choline PET/CT in imaging locally advanced prostate cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

PET Imaging with [11C]-choline has become a useful tool in the investigation of prostate cancer, with as main application the assessment of previously treated patients presenting with rising PSA and negative conventional imaging procedures. In this case report we describe [11C]-choline PET/CT findings in a patient with a locally advanced cancer, which could be successfully identified thanks to the early image acquisition and the delayed urinary excretion of the carbon-11 labeled tracer.
