RadNet is now offering the newest FDA-approved PET/CT tracer for prostate cancer.
What is F-18 PSMA/PyL?
F-18 PSMA/PyL is an injected molecular tracer that targets PSMA, used for a PET/CT scan.
F-18 PSMA/PyL binds to the active extracellular site of a PSMA molecule with high affinity and visualizes prostate cancer cells but not normal (healthy) cells.
BY TARGETING PSMA, a PYL PET/CT SCAN IMPROVES DISEASE ASSESSMENT IN PROSTATE CANCER—EVEN WHEN PSA LEVELS ARE LOW
PET/CT combines the images from a positron emission tomography (PET) (molecular scan) with those of a computed tomography (CT) (anatomic scan). The PET and CT scans are done at the same time with same machine. Together, they provide detailed images of anatomy and function of organs and tissues inside your body.
PET/CT is a way for physicians to learn accurate information about your cancer including stage, spread and how you are responding to treatment.
What is PSMA?
PSMA is a protein expressed in all prostate tissue.
95% of prostate cancer cells overexpress PSMA, making it an outstanding imaging marker for primary prostate tumor and metastases.
Which Prostate Cancer Patients are Candidates for PET/CT with F-18 PSMA/PyL?
F-18 PSMA/PyL is approved by the FDA for:
- Initial Staging – Prostate cancer patients with suspected metastases who are candidates for initial definitive treatment
- Biochemical Recurrence (BCR) – Prostate cancer patients with suspected recurrence based on elevated PSA level
What is the Prep for this Scan?
- No fasting required
- Not glucose dependent
- OK to take all medications
