Diagnostic Imaging of Bone Metastases in Prostate Cancer Patients

Brief description of study

An improved diagnosis of bone metastases in prostate cancer patients can have a significant impact on treatment strategy and probably survival as well.

The primary purpose of the project is to determine the diagnostic accuracy of bone SPECT-CT, choline-PET-CT, PSMA-PET-CT, NaF-PET-CT and Whole-body MRI in the diagnosis of bone metastases in prostate cancer patients.

Detailed Study Description

The project is a prospective diagnostic test accuracy study. The project takes place at Herlev Hospital and is a collaboration between the Department of Radiology and the Department of Clinical Physiology and Nuclear Medicine.

The investigators want to include 300 prostate cancer patients referred to our standard diagnostic imaging (NaF-PET-CT scan) by the clinicians.

In addition to the standard diagnostic imaging (NaF-PET-CT-scan), two project will be performed on all participants. The project has three arms with the following scanning

  1. Whole-body MRI + SPECT-CT B) Whole-body MRI + Cholin-PET-CT C) Whole-body MRI + PSMA-PET-CT The recruitment of project participants takes place on the day when the patients are undergoing a NaF-PET-CT scan in the course of regular clinical practice at our institution.

All readers are experienced radiologists or specialists in nuclear medicine. Patient identification on each scan will be anonymized and the reader will not have access to clinical and biochemical information or previous imaging studies.
