To evaluate the accuracy of [18F]-choline (FCH) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for staging and restaging of prostate cancer. FCH PET/CT was performed in 111 patients with prostate cancer using 200 MBq FCH: 43 patients [mean age 63 years; mean prostrate specific antigen (PSA) 11.58 μg/l] were examined for initial staging, and 68 patients (mean age 66.4 years) were examined for restaging (mean PSA 10.81 μg/l). FCH PET/CT results were correlated to histopathology, bone… CONTINUE READING
