PSMA PET/CT Scan Accuracy

05 Jun 2015

Prof Stricker and A/Prof Emmett have recently published a study comparing PSMA PET/CT scan to the more established Choline PET-CT scan. It confirmed that PSMA PET/CT scaning is much more accurate.

Prof Stricker is now conducting trials looking at patients with high-risk cancers using this new PET scanning to allow more appropriate therapy, particularly in high-volume, intermediate-risk cancers and high-risk prostate cancer.

A trial looking at the accuracy of the scan is also going to be combined with a new ultra-sensitive form of MRI (Combidex MRI).
