Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States. Positron emission tomography (PET), a non-invasive, sensitive, and quantitative imaging technique, can facilitate personalized management of PCa patients. There are two critical needs for PET imaging of PCa, early detection of primary lesions and accurate imaging of PCa bone metastasis, the predominant cause of death in PCa. Since the most widely used PET tracer in the clinic, 18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-2-D-glucose (18F-FDG), does not meet these needs, a wide variety of PET tracers have been developed for PCa imaging which span an enormous size range from small molecules to intact antibodies.
This course covers PET tracers for PCa imaging, including small molecule-based, radiolabeled amino acid derivatives, peptide-based tracers, and radiolabeled antibodies and antibody fragments. The course also identifies future directions for the development of novel PET tracers for PCa imaging, which may eventually lead to personalized management of PCa patients.
