ProstaScint scan for prostate cancer

ProstaScint scan for prostate cancer

A ProstaScint scan may be used to detect if prostate cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, adjacent tissue or bone.

What is a ProstaScint scan?

Given by intravenous injection, ProstaScint circulates throughout the body and attaches to prostate cancer cells. The injection contains a small amount of radioactive material that is absorbed by cancer cells and shows up as “hot spots” using a special camera.
