Study Title

68Ga-PSMA-11 Positron Emission Tomography / Computed Tomography (PET/CT) for Assessment of High Risk or Recurrent Prostate Cancer

Study Details


Prostate cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in men. Most patients with localized prostate cancer will be cured with surgery or radiation therapy, but up to 35% of patients will have their prostate cancer return. Whether it has returned locally or distantly determines which type of treatment they will receive. Current conventional imaging modalities have limitations particularly at low prostate specific antigen levels. This study proposes to use Gallium-68-PSMA-11 (68Ga-PSMA-11) Positron Emission Tomography / Computer Tomography (PET/CT) scans which targets prostate-specific membrane antigens (PSMA) to detect where in the body the prostate cancer has recurred.
