PSMA PET-SCAN

PSMA PET-SCAN

PET (Position Emission Tomography) is a nuclear medicine technique for evaluating biomedical and physiological processes in the body.
The combination with CT scan adds anatomic information.

We now have a new Gallium generator and can generate our own 68Ga labelled PSMA molecules and can easily do PSMA-PET for diagnosis and evaluation of prostate cancer.
