PURPOSE Our aim was to assess whether multiparametric magnetic resonance and PET-CT can have a role in detecting local recurrence in patients with biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy. METHODS We reviewed the recent international literature by carrying out a PUBMED search. RESULTS We critically reviewed 11 recent original studies about the use of PET-CT and 5 recent studies about the use of multiparametric magnetic resonance. PET-CT has not shown significant results in terms… CONTINUE READING
