The prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is highly expressed in prostate cancer (PC) cells. The recently introduced PSMA-PET/CT has evolved as a powerful imaging tool for staging of PC [1–3]. Albeit the high specificity of PSMAtracers, there are reports of high PSMA-expression in nonprostatic malignant (e.g., renal cell carcinoma, bronchial carcinoma… CONTINUE READING
