PSMA Imaging with 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT To Allow for Improved Identification of Prostate Cancer After Surgery
18F-DCFPyL is a novel low-molecular weight PET imaging agent which was developed to target prostate cancer cells which overexpress a protein known as PSMA (prostate specific membrane antigen). In an attempt to aid clinicians in managing patients with a PSA-only recurrence after radical prostatectomy we are investigating the accuracy of 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT in this clinical context. With this information, physicians have been able to customize treatment plans for these patients.
