Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging. 2017 Jun;44(6):1014-1024. doi: 10.1007/s00259-017-3670-z.

Abstract

The aim of this guideline is to provide standards for the recommendation, performance, interpretation and reporting of 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT for prostate cancer imaging. These recommendations will help to improve accuracy, precision, and repeatability of 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT for prostate cancer essentially needed for implementation of this modality in science and routine clinical practice.

Keywords: Guideline; PET; PSMA; Prostate cancer; Restaging; Staging.
