Although (18)F-fludeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (PET) is the most applied diagnostic method in tumor staging, its role in prostate cancer (PCA) is limited because glucose metabolism tends to be low unless PCA has high Gleason score. Alternatively, choline PET was introduced as a valuable imaging method. Kinetic analysis of PET acquisition has increasingly gained momentum as an investigative tool because it provides a non-invasive approach to obtain kinetic and metabolic data from… CONTINUE READING
