APCCC 2024 | The impact of novel imaging techniques on salvage radiotherapy decisions

Barbara Jereczek-Fossa, MD, PhD, University of Milan, Milan, Italy, discusses the role of novel imaging techniques such as prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and 18F-fluciclovine in guiding treatment decisions for salvage radiotherapy. These advancements allow for the detection of macroscopic disease at lower prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, leading to possible changes in the indication for salvage therapy, including options like large field prosthetic bed plus lymph node area radiotherapy or metastasis-directed therapy. Ongoing trials aim to define the role of these imaging modalities in clinical decision-making. This interview took place at the 2024 Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) in Lugano, Switzerland.
