Recent technical advances in positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) technology allow much improved time-of-flight (TOF) and regularized iterative PET reconstruction regularized iterative reconstruction (RIR) algorithms. We evaluated the effect of TOF and RIR on standardized uptake values (maximum and peak SUV [SUVmax and SUVpeak]) and their metabolic tumor volume dependencies and visual image quality for (18)F-fluorocholine PET/MRI in patients with newly diagnosed prostate cancer...

The association between choline uptake and androgen receptor (AR) expression is suggested by the upregulation of choline kinase-alpha in prostate cancer. Recently, detection of AR aberration in cell-free DNA as well as early 18F-fluorocholine positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FCH-PET/CT) were associated with outcome in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients treated with abiraterone and enzalutamide. We aimed to make a direct comparison between circulating AR copy number (CN) and choline uptake at FCH-PET/CT...

PURPOSE: Inadequate clinical target volume (CTV) definition is likely to be a major contributing factor to local recurrence (LR) rate after radiotherapy. Our aims were to identify sites of prostate cancer LR in biochemical recurrence post-prostatectomy using (18)F-Fluorocholine (18F-FCH) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and to compare different CTV-delineation guidelines in a cohort of postoperative patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty-six patients presenting with LR within the prostatic bed on 18F-FCH PET/CT between 10/2011 and 06/2016 were included in this retrospective study...

Endometriosis is a debilitating disease that still needs surgery to be confirmed. Endometriosis is associated with increased plasma levels of phosphatidylcholines. (18)F-fluorocholine ([(18)F]FCH) is a radiopharmaceutical that is metabolized to phosphatidylcholine inside the cells and can be traced by positron emission tomography (PET). Here we evaluate [(18)F]FCH as a potential tool for the noninvasive diagnosis of peritoneal endometriosis. Adult female Wistar rats had autologous uterine fragments dissected and grafted to the peritoneal wall to model peritoneal endometriosis...

Two patients with castrate-resistant prostate cancer and symptomatic skeletal metastases underwent F-fluorocholine PET/CT prior to treatment with Ra-dichloride to reveal additional active lesions in the prostate gland and lymph nodes. Subsequent scans performed at the midpoint and end of Ra-dichloride therapy showed resolution of this soft tissue activity alongside declining bone lesion activity. Concomitant increases in plasma interleukin 6 were detected, suggesting that immune system activation may have mediated the soft tissue response...

We present 3 cases of patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer and bone metastases treated with Ra, belonging to our prospective and multicenter ChoPET-Rad study. All patients underwent clinical, hematological, and biochemical monitoring between each Ra administration. Initial and follow-up F-fluorocholine PET/CT and Tc-biphosphonate bone scintigraphy were performed previously and after the third Ra administration. Both techniques correctly established the response to treatment, in agreement to the biochemical response, although differences in the disease expression (concordant and discordant patterns) were found because of the different radiotracer biodistribution and molecular information derived from them...

A 72-year-old man with prostate cancer (stage T3b, Gleason score 7) treated by radical prostatectomy was found to have biochemical failure (prostate-specific antigen 8.5 ng/mL) and a suspicious growing nodularity at the left prostate bed on MRI. F-fluorocholine PET/CT failed to demonstrate any site of uptake suggestive of malignancy. A bone scan did exclude bone metastases. Ga-PSMA PET/CT revealed various positive lymph nodes in the supraclavicular, mediastinal, and hilar regions. This was confirmed on F-DCFPyl PET/CT, with the addition of a suspicious right axillary lymph node...

Objective: In recent years, inherited and acquired mutations in the TCA cycle enzymes have been reported in diverse cancers. Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PPGLs) often exhibit dysregulation of glucose metabolism which is also driven by mutations in genes encoding the TCA cycle enzymes or by activation of hypoxia signaling. PPGLs associated with succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) deficiency are characterized by high (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose ([(18)F]-FDG) avidity. This association is currently only partially explained...

INTRODUCTION: Since April 201, we have introduced PET/CT using a ligand of prostate-specific membrane antigen labeled with gallium-68 (PSMA-11). We aimed to evaluate its positivity rate and impact in patients presenting biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer whose (18)F-fluorocholine (FCH) PET/CT was non-contributive. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Patients were prospectively included between April and December 2016. PET/CT was performed 60min after injection of 2MBq/kg of body mass of (68)Ga-PSMA-11...

Primary hyperparathyroidism is caused by parathyroid adenoma in the majority of cases and diagnosis is usually made biochemically. Pre-surgical localization of parathyroid adenoma is essential to limit the extent of surgery and avoid missing them at ectopic sites. Anatomical and functional imaging are used for the localization, but may fail to identify the small and ectopic parathyroid adenoma. We present a case of small sized ectopic parathyroid adenoma at unusual location detected by F-18 fluorocholine (FCH) PET/CT, where other imaging modalities failed...

We report on a 71-year-old woman presenting with biochemical features indicating recurrent disease in long-term follow-up of left-sided parathyroid carcinoma. She had undergone several surgical procedures including total thyroidectomy, partial resection of the esophageal wall, and curative neck radiation 12 years previously. PET/CT using F-fluorocholine revealed high uptake in local relapse in the lower neck, comparable to F-FDG, whereas only faint uptake was observed with F-fluoroethyl tyrosine. As shown in this case, imaging with FDG and F-fluorocholine is feasible in (recurrent) parathyroid carcinoma and clearly superior to F-fluoroethyl tyrosine...

BACKGROUND: The use of radiolabeled choline as a positron emission tomography (PET) agent for imaging primary tumors in the prostate has been evaluated extensively over the past two decades. There are, however, conflicting reports of its sensitivity and the relationship between choline PET imaging and disease staging is not fully understood. Moreover, relatively few studies have investigated the correlation between tracer uptake and histological tumor grade. This work quantified (18)F-fluorocholine in tumor and healthy prostate tissue using pharmacokinetic modeling and stratified uptake parameters by histology grade...
