11C-choline positron emission tomography/computerized tomography for preoperative lymph-node staging in intermediate-risk and high-risk prostate cancer: comparison with clinical staging nomograms.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Conventional imaging (CI) techniques are inadequate for lymph node (LN) staging in prostate cancer (PCa). OBJECTIVES To assess the accuracy of (11)C-Choline positron emission tomography/computerized tomography (PET/CT) for LN staging in intermediate-risk and high-risk PCa and to compare it with two currently used nomograms. DESIGN, SETTING… (More)
