Last updated:1st Nov 2015

The main aim is to assess the impact of using fluciclovine (18F) (as a PET imaging radiotracer) on the clinical and treatment decision required for managing patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer (BCR) who are being considered for salvage treatment with the intention of providing disease cure. Also, this study will consolidate the information regarding diagnostic performance of fluciclovine PET/CT in a large number of prospectively followed patients at several centres in the UK and assess the effect of PSA level on the likelihood of detecting cancer lesions by fluciclovine (18F).
