Brief Summary:
This pilot study aims to investigate the diagnostic utility of 18F-DCFPyL, a novel low-molecular weight PSMA PET/CT imaging agent, in men with an elevated PSA following radical prostatectomy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate Drug: 18F-DCFPyL Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
18F-DCFPyL is a novel low-molecular weight PSMA imaging agent. A recent study of patients with metastatic prostate cancer found that PSMA PET/CT identified more sites of disease than conventional imaging with CT, MRI and bone scan. In this study we aim to investigate 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT in patients with an elevated PSA following radical prostatectomy. During the course of this study, patients will undergo two 18F-DCPyL PET/CT scans. The first scan will take place within 45 days of staging imaging and the second will take place following six months of standard of care therapy.
