New Advances in Prostate Cancer Radionuclide Imaging

Imaging plays an essential role in prostate cancer clinical management. A great deal of research has brought about improved prostate imaging modalities. Clinical trials have tested numerous radionuclides for positron emission tomography. Results from new PET tracers such as F-1-amino-3-fluorine 18-fluorocyclobutane-1-carboxylic acid and Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen ligands are demonstrating promise. This course analyzes the benefits and issues of various radiotracers, including some that have recently become available on the market.

Target Audience

Learning Objectives

  • Review the new prostate cancer radiotracers that have recently become available, as well as those just entering clinical trials.
  • Discuss advantages and issues regarding various radiotracers.
