BACKGROUND The detection of lymph node metastases (LNMs) is one of the biggest challenges in imaging in urology. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the accuracy of combined 18F-fluoroethylcholine (FEC) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) in the detection of LNMs in prostate cancer (PCa) patients with rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level after radical prostatectomy. DESIGN, SETTINGS, AND PARTICIPANTS From June 2005 until November 2011, 56 PCa patients with biochemical… CONTINUE READING
