208Background: It is estimated that within ten years of primary treatment for prostate cancer up to 40% of patients post radical prostatectomy, and up to 50% of patients post radiotherapy will develop disease recurrence. While monitoring of PSA levels is informative of biochemical recurrence, it may precede radiologically detectable recurrence by months to years, and cannot differentiate local/regional recurrence from systemic disease. This represents a management dilemma for treating physicians. The incorporation of PET probes targeting prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) for prostate cancer shows promise for improving the management of patients with prostate cancer, when used alongside existing imaging techniques, like CT, MRI and bone scans. Methods: Retrospective review of all patients referred from our institution for PSMA imaging was carried out. Baseline clinical features were determined and we analyzed impact of PSMA imaging on management outcomes and survival data. Results: 33 patients refe...

Prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography (PSMA PET) is a promising imaging modality for detection of biochemical recurrent prostate cancer (BRPCa). This systematic review and meta-analysis was to summarize the impact of PSMA PET on the management of BRPCa patients based on prospective studies. According to the PRISMA statement, articles in Pubmed and Embase were searched till May 26th, 2020 to identify eligible prospective studies that reported changes in the management of...

Brain metastases from prostate cancer are rare and usually only occur in the context of widespread systemic disease. This is the first case report of a solitary brain oligometastasis, in a neurologically intact prostate cancer patient with no other systemic disease, detected using [68Ga]Ga-THP-PSMA PET/CT and only the second one using a PSMA-based radiopharmaceutical. We report the case of a prostate cancer patient presenting 5 years after robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy with biochemic...
