I have just located a hospital with a PSMA PET/CT scan machine Galliun GA68. I was so astonished having read on this forum of the difficulties in finding such machines that I immediately booked and paid $460 for a scan.
But I’m wondering if this is too soon after my HIFU procedure last November 2018 (4 months ago) for a focal tumor.
My recent PSA test is 4.6, not the 0.0 nadir result I had hoped for. My urologist is concerned and says there seems to be be cancer cells somewhere in my Which are emitting the antigen. He sent me for a bone scan which was why I was at the nuclear medicine Dept of my local hospital. I’m having that WB PET NAF bone scan too.
Is it too early for the PSMA PET/CT scan after my HIFU. Will there be false positive readings which I’ve read about on this forum.
I work in the Middle East snd these machines are new here. Is the ability to interpret the results too difficult for non-first world countries? I guess I can send the images to Lobdon for check analysis.
Any comments greatly appreciated.
