PET/CT Plus MRI May Aid Salvage Radiotherapy for Nodal Recurrent PCa

February 25, 2016

Patients with nodal recurrent prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy may benefit from extended salvage radiotherapy directed by positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a study found.

The study included 25 prostate cancer (PCa) patients who after primary radical prostatectomy (RP) or previous prostate fossa salvage radiotherapy (RT) experienced nodal or nodal plus locally recurrent prostate cancer confirmed by choline-PET/CT and MRI. Following extended salvage radiotherapy (esRT) at the sites of recurrence, the cohort had a mean follow-up of 2.9 years.
