Phase 3, SPOTLIGHT
The ability to determine the extent and location of recurrent prostate cancer is key for physicians and their patients. Conventional imaging techniques have many limitations in prostate cancer identification and localisation. In the SPOTLIGHT study, 18F-rhPSMA-7.3 PET imaging proved to have a favourable detection rate for prostate cancer recurrence. Up to 40% of patients who undergo radical prostatectomy and up to 50% of patients who undergo radiation therapy will develop local or distant recurrences within 10 years [1]. The ability to determine the extent and location of recurrent prostate cancer is key for appropriate clinical management. However, conventional imaging techniques have many limitations in prostate cancer identification and localisation, and greater imaging accuracy is needed throughout the care continuum to optimise therapeutic decision‐making. The SPOTLIGHT study (
