How to use PSMA-PET/CT in the Management of Relapsing Prostate Cancer Patients following Local Therapy with Curative Intent Webcast (2023)

he learners will understand the following critical clinical aspects with regard to the clinical application of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-positron emission tomography (PET)/CT scanning mode of action of PSMA-PET/CT: pitfalls of PSMA-PET/CT diagnostic accuracy depending on PSA, PSA double time, prostate cancer histology, application of PSMA-PET/CT to identify patients with intrapelvic nodal relapse who will benefit from local therapy such as salvage lymphadenectomy or stereotactic radiation therapy, application of PSMA-PET/CT to identify patients with organ-confined radiorecurrent local relapse of prostate cancer who might be candidates for radical salvage prostatectomy, and application of new PSMA-PET/CT-based clinical staging system as a standardized reporting framework

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the clinical scenario in which PSMA-PET/CT is most helpful to identify the localization and extent of locoregional or systemic metastatic disease.
  2. Identify the pitfalls of false-positive and false-negative PSMA-PET/CT findings.
  3. Apply the findings of PSMA-PET/CT for the best individual therapeutic approach.
  4. Identify patients with radiorecurrent organ-confined prostate cancer.
  5. Identify those patients who are candidates for local therapy of oligometastatic disease in relapsing prostate cancer.
