Abstract

In recent years there was an impressive improvement in the options for the management of patients with prostate cancer. Nuclear Medicine has significantly enriched its diagnostic options, both in radiopharmacy and in instrumentation, in order to accurately target prostatic cancer cells, thus rendering the physicians able to adopt the best therapeutic strategy. In the present analysis, we have evaluated the available published data about 68Ga-PSMA and radio-labeled choline, two radiopharmaceutical agents for positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) examination, by reporting clinical information and considering data about legal, economic and organization aspects.
