This study evaluated the utility of In-111 capromab pendetide imaging to detect prostate cancer metastases or local recurrence. The specific goal was to identify clinical factors such as prostate-specific antigen, pathologic stage, and Gleason score that were most predictive of a positive scan outcome. In addition, a new concept of a weighted Gleason score was defined and correlated with the scan outcome. Fifty-one patients with an elevated prostate-specific antigen level and otherwise negative… CONTINUE READING
