[First experience of using positron emission tomography with 11C-choline in prostate cancer (PC)].

[Article in Russian]


Introduction into clinical practice of combined positron emission technology and computer tomography (PET/CT) allows in one study to identify structural and functional abnormalities. The study involves 32 patients who underwent PET/CT with "C-choline, including 5 patients with prostate cancer (PC), 3--with chronic prostatitis and 24--with biochemical PC recurrence. PET/CT with 11C-choline has a high diagnostic efficacy in detection of local recurrence and PC metastases in patients with biochemical PC recurrence. The results of visual analysis do not permit to distinguish PC from benign prostate diseases.
