68Ga-PSMA PET/MR-positive, histopathology-proven prostate cancer in a patient with negative multiparametric prostate MRI


Muehlematter, Urs J; Rupp, Niels J; Mueller, Julia; Eberli, Daniel; Burger, Irene A (2018). 68Ga-PSMA PET/MR-positive, histopathology-proven prostate cancer in a patient with negative multiparametric prostate MRI. Clinical Nuclear Medicine, 43(8):e282-e284.

Abstract

Multiparametric MRI incorporating T2-weighted, diffusion-weighted, and dynamic contrast material-enhanced sequences is currently used for detection and localization of clinically important prostate cancer (PCa). The Ga-labeled PET tracer targeting the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA, Ga-PSMA-11) is a promising diagnostic approach for staging and restating PCa. Recent studies suggest that Ga-PSMA could also be used for primary PCa detection and localization. We report a case of a Ga-PSMA PET/MR-positive lesion of the peripheral zone in a 73-year-old man with a negative preceding multiparametric MRI. Radical prostatectomy and subsequent histopathologic examination confirmed a Gleason 4 + 4 PCa.
