Biochemical Recurrence After Local Therapy: Assessment and Management – Summary:

Peter R. Carroll, MD, MPH, Taube Family Distinguished Professor in Urology at the University of California, San Francisco, outlines detection and treatment options for biochemical recurrence following a prostatectomy or radiation therapy. He details how recurrence can be detected with PSMA PET imaging, as the majority of cases have PSMA-avid lesions present. Dr. Carroll further notes typical and atypical regional and local areas of recurrence. He also describes a new disease management algorithm for deciding between further radiation therapy or monitoring & localized treatment.
