  1. "Another new form of radioisotope, copper-64 (64Cu), has recently undergone Phase I clinical testing for similar uses when linked to the PSMA-617 ligand. One of the potential benefits of a 64Cu-PSMA imaging agent is that it is more stable and has a longer half-life than 68Ga. This means that this imaging agent could be made at a central facility and distributed from there to clinical PET scan centers that don’t have the radiochemistry capabilities necessary for the preparation of 68Ga-PSMA imaging agents." The New Prostate Cancer Infolink has a report on the trial carried out at

  7. In case you missed last night's Channel 9 news, there was an item about a new MRI technique which will improve diagnosis of prostate cancer, particularly in lymph nodes. The research is being conducted at Brisbane's Wesley Hospital. Click on this link to read about the new technique. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a scan used for a medical imaging procedure. An MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to take pictures of the body's interior.
