[18F]fluoromethylcholine (FCH) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for lymph node staging of prostate cancer: a prospective study of 210 patients

BJU International, 04/24/2012

Due to a relatively low sensitivity and a correspondingly rather low positive predictive values (PPV), fluoromethylcholine (FCH) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is not ideal for primary lymph node staging in patients with prostate cancer. However, FCH PET/CT does convey important additional information otherwise not recognised, especially for bone metastases.
