Targeted Radionuclide Imaging and Therapy in Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy in men and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in Europe. Although localized prostate cancer can be treated effectively in different ways, many patients progress to incurable metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Diagnostic nuclear medicine techniques for imaging PSMA have been firmly established over the last years in guiding treatment decisions in prostate cancer patients. Moreover, emerging randomized clinical trial data demonstrate the critical role of targeted radionuclide therapies in managing advanced disease, improving overall survival. This seminar will cover the spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine techniques in prostate cancer.
