    Purpose: To evaluate diagnostic accuracy of integrated 68Gallium labelled prostate-specific membrane antigen (68Ga-PSMA)-11 positron emission tomography (PET)/MRI in patients with primary prostate cancer (PCa) as compared to multi-parametric MRI....

  • False-negative Bone Scan and Choline PET/CT Study in a Case of Prostate Cancer: The Pitfall of the Small Cell Prostate Carcinoma Variant. Al-Tamimi, Ammad; Tan, Andrew Eik Hock; Kwong, Sidney Yu Wing; Sam, Christopher Cheng Wai; Chong, Angela; Cher Heng Tan // World Journal of Nuclear Medicine;May2012, Vol. 11 Issue 2, p75 

    We present a rare variant of prostate carcinoma. The patient is a 45-year-old male with elevated prostate-specific antigen levels at screening. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed hyperenhancing lesions throughout the axial skeleton. The fluorine-18 fluorocholine (FCH) positron emission...

  • Ga-PSMA PET/MR with multimodality image analysis for primary prostate cancer. Eiber, Matthias; Nekolla, Stephan; Maurer, Tobias; Weirich, Gregor; Wester, Hans-Jürgen; Schwaiger, Markus // Abdominal Imaging;Aug2015, Vol. 40 Issue 6, p1769 

    Current imaging procedures for prostate cancer including positron emission tomography (PET) exhibit considerable limitations and are not always able to meet the diagnostic needs. Recently, a Gallium-labeled ligand of the prostate-specific membrane antigen (Ga-PSMA) has been introduced in...

  • Initial Evaluation of [F]DCFPyL for Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA)-Targeted PET Imaging of Prostate Cancer. Szabo, Zsolt; Mena, Esther; Rowe, Steven; Plyku, Donika; Nidal, Rosa; Eisenberger, Mario; Antonarakis, Emmanuel; Fan, Hong; Dannals, Robert; Chen, Ying; Mease, Ronnie; Vranesic, Melin; Bhatnagar, Akrita; Sgouros, George; Cho, Steve; Pomper, Martin // Molecular Imaging & Biology;Aug2015, Vol. 17 Issue 4, p565 

    Purpose: Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a recognized target for imaging prostate cancer. Here we present initial safety, biodistribution, and radiation dosimetry results with [F]DCFPyL, a second-generation fluorine-18-labeled small-molecule PSMA inhibitor, in patients with prostate...

  • Modalities for imaging of prostate cancer. Hou, A. H.; Swanson, D.; Barqawi, A. B. // Advances in Urology;2009, Special section p1 

    Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths among males in the United States. Prostate screening by digital rectal examination and prostate-specific antigen has shifted the diagnosis of prostate cancer to lower grade, organ confined disease, adding to overdetection and...

  • MRI and prostate cancer: the next frontier. Klotz, Laurence H. // Canadian Urological Association Journal;Aug2010, Vol. 4 Issue 4, p227 

    The author discusses the treatment of the patients with prostate cancer by transrectal ultrasound (TRUS). He states that improvements and accuracy in the TRUS technology is growing at a good rate and the results of TRUS are not generally incorporated into treatment decisions. Due to this many...

  • Incremental value of diffusion weighted and dynamic contrast enhanced MRI in the detection of locally recurrent prostate cancer after radiation treatment: preliminary results. Akin, Oguz; Gultekin, David H.; Vargas, Hebert Alberto; Zheng, Junting; Moskowitz, Chaya; Xin Pei; Sperling, Dahlia; Schwartz, Lawrence W.; Hricak, Hedvig; Zelefsky, Michael J. // European Radiology;Sep2011, Vol. 21 Issue 9, p1970 

    Objectives: To assess the incremental value of diffusion-weighted (DW-MRI) and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) to T2-weighted MRI (T2WI) in detecting locally recurrent prostate cancer after radiotherapy. Methods: Twenty-four patients (median age, 70 years) with a history of...
