Abstract

A 78-year-old male patient was affected by prostate cancer and was referred for an 11C-choline PET/CT scan (Fig. 128.1) because of rising PSA levels and lower back pain. The scan was negative for malignancy, but a completely cold area was detected in L2, corresponding to a vertebral collapse at CT.
