Brief Summary:

Evaluate the impact of hybrid 18F-Fluoro-choline (18F-FCH) PET/MRI imaging on the clinical management of men with suspected recurrent prostate cancer post prostatectomy or radiotherapy.

We hypothesize that hybrid imaging incorporating 18F-FCH PET/MRI imaging will be feasible and will lead to changes in management decisions among men being re-staged for suspected prostate cancer recurrence post-surgery or radiation who are potentially eligible for local salvage therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Cancer Other: 18F-FCH PET/MRI imaging Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The study will be a non-randomized, prospective study of men with suspected local recurrence of prostate cancer post-prostatectomy or radiation with negative bone and CT scans. Hybrid PET/MRI using 18F-FCH will be obtained and a consensus staging report generated for the attending clinician. Clinical management questionnaires completed by the study investigator will be obtained pre and post imaging in order to gauge the impact of the hybrid imaging on clinical decision making.

Arm Intervention/treatment
18F-FCH PET/MRI imaging
Patients eligible for the study will have an 18F-FCH PET/MRI in addition to standard of care clinical assessment and imaging (CT and bone scan)
Other: 18F-FCH PET/MRI imaging
Patients will first undergo screening to ensure eligibility. If eligible, they will undergo one scan in a Hybrid PET/MRI scanner using 18F-FCH as the radiolabeled tracer.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Frequency in change of clinical management based on results of 18F-FCH PET/MRI [ Time Frame: Within 2 weeks of study scan ]
    A questionnaire to assess the planned management will be completed by the investigator before and after provision of the results of the 18F-FCH PET/MRI to determine if the information provided by 18F-FCH PET/MRI influences the preferred plan of management

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of lesions identified with 18F-FCH based on consensus reporting [ Time Frame: Within 2 weeks of study scan ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Concordance between MRI and 18F-FCH PET for lesion identification [ Time Frame: Within 2 weeks of study scan ]
    Lesions identified on the 18F-FCH MRI/PET will be examined to determine what proportion of lesions are present on both MRI and PET imaging versus what proportion of lesions are present on only one of MRI or PET
