This was new to me, I only heard of C11-Choline for PC imaging, but obviously C11-Acetate is also very useful, as described in this study: www.goldjournal.net/article/S0090-4295(05)01697-3/abstract
It is probably too early to tell which method is more optimal, but both sound promising. As with all the imaging, I suppose you have to have a certain PSA level (for Choline I think it is 2.0ng/ml) in order for cells to be visualized. Dr.Almeida seems to be a great doctor and scientist, good luck in your decision, all the best!
Father (69 now) diagnosed with PCs in Jan 2011:
DRE positive, PSA 7.5, biopsy Gleason 6, second expert opinion: Gleason 7 and 8.
two inconclusive bone-scintigraphies, MR scan showed 2 bone mets
Feb 2011: Started hormonal therapy (Trelstar+Casodex) in Jan 2011
Jan 2012: Added Zometa
Mar 2012: went "off" hormonal therapy after PSA reached 0.055
