(18)F-choline PET/CT for early detection of metastases in biochemical recurrence following radical prostatectomy.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Salvage radiotherapy (SRT) for biochemical recurrence (BCR) following radical prostatectomy (RP) should if possible be added at a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level of <1-2 ng/mL. The value of positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography (PET/CT) at such low PSA values is not defined. The purpose was to determine what proportion of a well-defined cohort of hormone-naïve patients who were candidates for early salvage radiotherapy had (18)F-choline PET/CT findings suggesting metastases.
