F-18-fluciclovine PET/CT better targets radiotherapy for recurrent prostate cancer

CT, MR and nuclear medicine bone scans are conventionally used to guide and monitor targeted treatment for recurrent prostate cancer, but researchers at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University may have found a better alternative. Preliminary results in a three-year study that found fluorine-18-fluciclovine PET/CT can improve radiotherapy targeting were published in the March issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
