UNLABELLED This prospective pilot study evaluated the ability of Na(18)F PET/CT to detect and monitor bone metastases over time and its correlation with clinical outcomes and survival in advanced prostate cancer. METHODS Sixty prostate cancer patients, including 30 with and 30 without known bone metastases by conventional imaging, underwent Na(18)F PET/CT at baseline, 6 mo, and 12 mo. Positive lesions were verified on follow-up scans. Changes in SUVs and lesion number were correlated with… CONTINUE READING
