  • May 4, 2015 — Recurrence of Prostate Cancer Detected Earlier with Innovative PSMA-ligand PET/CT
    May 4, 2015 - A recent study reported in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine compared use of the novel Ga-68-PSMA-ligand PET/CT with other imaging methods and found that it had substantially higher detection rates of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) in patients with biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy. Discovering a recurrence early can strongly influence further clinical management, so it is especially noteworthy that this hybrid PSMA-ligand identified a large number of positive findings in the clinically important range of low PSA-values (<0.5ng/mL).

Had he been diagnosed just a year later, Douglas might have benefited from molecular imaging, an emerging technology that allows doctors to precisely target a patient’s specific cancer cells.
