The aim of the study is to determine if FCH-PET-CT imaging is superior to combined bone scan and MRI/CT of the abdomen & pelvis in detecting the increased incidence of metastasis (nodal/distant outside the pelvis) in men with prostatic carcinoma with germline BRCA mutations.

Condition Prostate Cancer, BRCA1 Mutation, BRCA2 Mutation
Treatment MRI pelvis or CT imaging, Whole body bone scan imaging, FCH-PET-CT imaging
