Abstract/OtherAbstract:
ABSTRACT: Bone scintigraphy has been used extensively in prostate cancer patients to detect bone involvement.C-choline PET/CT is indicated when a biochemical recurrence is suspected, as this procedure is able to detect local recurrence, lymph-node infiltration, and metastases.In cases where the results of these 2 procedures do not coincide, MRI is then usually performed. F-fluoride may become an alternative to MRI for bone imaging.In our patient series, all bone lesions with C-choline uptake were metastases. F-Fluoride did not increase specificity of C-choline but increased sensitivity of bone scintigraphy. CT helped in the interpretation of osteoarthritis and trauma lesions.
