Transcription

PSMA-PET imaging has allowed us to get a more accurate diagnosis. We are now able to evaluate the patient’s entire body. So we now have the ability to get a more accurate perspective on patients’ disease stage. We can tell for the most part if the disease is localized to the pelvis, or if it has spread to distant organs. Of course, with that knowledge knowing we are able to more accurately tailor the patient's treatment planning paradigm.
