Abstract

The 18F-choline PET-CT (FCH) has better performance in the assessment of patients with prostate cancer than 18F-FDG could do. However, similarly, it is also not a tumor specific radiotracer.

We present four 18F-FCH PET-CT scans in which false positive findings were correctly assessed after evaluation with CT, clinical parameters and/or histological analysis.

Keywords:
18F-choline
PET-CT
Prostate cancer
Pitfalls
Resumen

La PET-TC con 18F-Colina (FCH) posee un mayor rendimiento en la valoración de pacientes con cáncer de próstata que la 18F-FDG; no obstante, al igual que esta, tampoco es un radiotrazador específico tumoral.

Presentamos cuatro estudios PET-TC realizados con 18F-FCH donde obtuvimos hallazgos falsos positivos catalogados correctamente tras la valoración con la TC, parámetros clínicos y/o análisis histológico.

Palabras clave:
18F-fluorocolina
PET-TC
Cáncer de próstata
Falsos positivos
