The emergence of the novel SARS-CoV-2 pathogen and lethal COVID-19 disease pandemic poses major diagnostic challenges. The study aims to describe the spectrum and prevalence of thoracic and extrathoracic incidental findings in patients who have undergone 18F-FDG PET/CT during the first 3 weeks of the COVID-19 UK lockdown. This is a single-centre retrospective controlled observational study. 18F-FDG PET/CT scans (n = 160) acquired from 23/3/2020 to 9/4/2020 were retrospectively reviewed for incid...

Bing-Neel syndrome is a rare neurological complication of Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia. We present the case of a 71-year-old man who underwent prechemotherapy and postchemotherapy FDG PET/MRI scan for the evaluation of cerebrospinal disease. In light of limited literature and lack of consensus guidelines on the role of metabolic imaging, we aim to highlight the utility of FDG PET/MRI in the diagnosis and response assessment in Bing-Neel syndrome.

1255 Objectives: The primary objective was to evaluate the phenomenon of benign bone marrow uptake which has been described with 18F-PSMA-1007 using PET/MRI. Secondary objectives were to review the initial experience and technical feasibility of staging and restaging of prostate cancer using 18F-PSMA-1007 PET/MRI and to assess if a pelvic section of Diffusion Weighted Imaging provided any additional lesion detection over the standard PET/MRI dataset. Methods: Thirty-four consecutive patients wer...

1259 Objectives: The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the impact of a novel, kit-based formulation of 68Ga‐THP‐PSMA positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) on the management of patients with prostate cancer (PCa). The secondary objective of the study was to evaluate the safety of 68Ga‐THP-PSMA in patients with PCa. Methods: Patients with histopathologically proven prostate cancer with potentially operable, untreated disease, Gleason score >4+3 , or PSA >20 ng/mL o...

OBJECTIVE: Paragangliomas are rare tumours of neural crest origin that express high levels of somatostatin receptor. Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT is a widely accepted method for imaging of neuroendocrine tumours. This study was performed to review a Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT patient database and to establish the impact of the modality on patient treatment. METHODS: Demographic data, imaging data and change in management after Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT were evaluated. RESULTS: Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT scans were p...

Two cases with Ga-PSMA-avid prostate cancer recurrence in the vas deferens are presented. These cases highlight the clinical importance of imaging the pattern of local prostate cancer recurrence and the potential difficulties that arise due to the altered anatomy in the prostate bed after prostatectomy or radiotherapy.
