Imaging Case 10:
Prostate cancer – Adenocarcinoma

Nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy aims to reduce postoperative impotence, but this comes at the cost of a higher probability of incomplete resection. In this case, we illustrate how intraoperative specimen PET-CT imaging with 18F-PSMA can visualize the tumor in the resected tissue specimen. This could aid the surgeon in deciding whether it is necessary to remove more tissue intraoperatively.
