Expanding the Role of Radiopharmaceuticals for Prostate Cancer Management

This activity is jointly provided by Global Education Group and PlatformQ Health Education, LLC, in collaboration with ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer (ZERO).

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

This activity is supported by educational grants from Lantheus Medical Imaging, Blue Earth Diagnostics, and Applied Accelerator Applications, a division of Novartis

DATE OF RELEASE/EXPIRATION

This activity was released on May 3, 2022 and is valid until May 3, 2023. Requests for credit must be made no later than May 3, 2023.

TARGET AUDIENCE

The target audiences for the proposed HCP activity are urologists; radiation, surgical, and medical oncologists; radiologists; nuclear medicine specialists; pathologists; and other HCPs interested/involved in the diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with prostate cancer.

STATEMENT OF NEED/PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer affecting men in the US, with approximately 1 in 8 men expected to be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetimes. While significant treatment advances have been made, prostate-cancer mortality remains high and accurate diagnosis and staging are critical to provide timely interventions and optimize outcomes.

Newer imaging techniques using molecular radiotracers provide improved sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy compared to conventional modalities for prostate-cancer detection. While prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) imaging shows clear clinical utility to identify disease earlier, it can still be difficult to determine which situations require PSMA PET/CT imaging to identify disease burden and redefine high-volume disease.

Join urologists and prostate-cancer experts Dr. Neal Shore and Dr. Michael Gorin to discuss the role of approved and emerging radiopharmaceuticals in the optimal management of prostate cancer. Panelists will compare newer radiotracers with conventional imaging and review recent safety and efficacy data on the integration of molecular imaging into all stages of prostate cancer.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
  • Outline clinical-trial data for approved and investigational radiotracers for prostate-cancer imaging
  • Evaluate clinical scenarios in which PSMA PET identifies disease burden beyond radionuclide bone scans and CT in order to identify disease recurrence in patients with prostate cancer
  • Analyze the safety and efficacy of emerging theranostic agents for the treatment of advance prostate cancer
