At NHRMC, radiologists use a PET/CT scan with an Axumin exam (Fluciclovine F 18) as a diagnostic test for men with suspected recurrence of prostate cancer based on rising PSA levels.
The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommends this test be considered in clinical workups for suspected prostate cancer recurrence.
The PET/CT with Axumin lasts approximately 30 minutes and is offered at NHRMC Health & Diagnostics – Medical Mall. A physician order is required to schedule this diagnostic exam.
