Summary of "Early lesion detection with F-DCFPyL PET/CT in 248 patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer."

Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT is increasingly used in patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer (BCR), mostly using gallium-68 (Ga)-labelled radiotracers. Alternatively, fluorine-18 (F)-labelled PSMA tracers are available, such as F-DCFPyL, which offer enhanced image quality and therefore potentially increased detection of small metastases. In this study we evaluate the lesion detection efficacy of F-DCFPyL PET/CT in patients with BCR and determine the detection efficacy as a function of their PSA value.
