Dual-Tracer Theranostic Position Emission Tomography (PET)
Position Emission Tomography (PET) /CT scans are a way to see images inside of the body. Theranostics are a combination of using a radioactive drug to diagnose and a second radioactive drug to deliver therapy. Research is needed to develop methods that combine 2 different types of scans. These may be given to patients with neuroendocrine tumors and prostate cancer. The goal of the study is to eliminate the need to have the scans given separately and combine them into one patient health clinic visit.
