Prostate Cancer Local Recurrence Detected With Both 18F-Fluciclovine and PSMA-targeted 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We present the case of a 79-year-old man with an elevated postprostatectomy prostate-specific antigen level who was sequentially imaged with positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) using 18F-fluciclovine followed by PSMA-targeted 18F-DCFPyL. Although both imaging tests successfully identified the same pelvic recurrence, each radiotracer had its relative merits. This case highlights the differences between these 2 PET radiotracers, which are increasingly being used to image men with recurrent prostate cancer.
