PSMA PET-CT scans are important in the detection and staging of prostate cancer. In Australia, the most commonly used tracer for PSMA PET-CT scans is Gallium-68 (Ga-68).
However, Qscan Group uses Fluorine-18 (F-18), a tracer developed by Professor Martin Pomper, director of nuclear medicine and imaging at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Qscan Group has been using F-18 as our PSMA tracer of choice since 2017.
We are the most experienced in Australia when it comes to using F-18 for PSMA imaging, and will bring this leading expertise to all your prostate patients.
PSMA PET-CT is available at all Qscan clinics that offer PET-CT services. Click here to find a clinic near you.
