18F-Fluciclovine PET/CT Superior to 11C-Choline PET/CT for the Detection of a Prostate Cancer Relapse

We have all been ever increasingly aware of the weakness of our scanning technologies when it comes to both diagnosing prostate cancer and its recurrence. Given that about 1/3 of all primary treatments for prostate cancer will fail and the cancer will return it is vital that we improve our ability to detect prostate cancer [...]

Comparing (18)F-FACBC (anti1-amino-3-(18)F-fluorocyclobutane-1-carboxylic acid) and (11)C-choline PET/CT in Prostate Cancer Relapse

There has been a lot of hype and confusion about what is the best contrast for prostate cancer PET/CT scans. The two newest contrasts; (18)F-FACBC (anti1-amino-3-(18)F-fluorocyclobutane-1-carboxylic acid) and (11)C-choline both have their supporters and their detractors. To try and evaluate the efficacy differences between these two contrasts in men who have suffered a bio-chemical recurrence [...]

More Information About C11 Choline Scans & Some of the Other Alternative Scans Used to ID Focal Advanced Prostate Cancer Recurrences

Off-line I have received a number of additional questions about the use of imaging with c11 choline (see my post at http://advancedprostatecancer.net/?p=3433). The questions ranged from what is c11 choline to how it compares to some of the other more sensitive PET scans contrasts that are being used to identify specific locations of recurrent advanced [...]
