CASE STUDY: THE  IMPACT OF PSMA PET/CT FOR INITIAL STAGING 

PSMA PET/CT for Initial Staging – PATIENT CASE STUDY 01

Patient overview:

  • 70 y/o male with newly diagnosed prostate cancer, Gleason 4+4, PSA 5.28 ng/ml.
  • PSMA PET/CT ordered to initially stage the patient to improve the sensitivity of anatomical-based imaging.

Impact of PSMA PET/CT:

  • Focal intense uptake was noted in the prostate bed with no nodal uptake noted.
  • Solitary rib uptake with associated sclerosis (fibrous uptake).
  • The solitary rib uptake should not preclude definitive management, especially in the setting of absent nodal uptake.
