The fluciclovine (Axumin) PET is FDA approved and is available at several sites. You can contact them to find the closest
location to you and to get details on insurance reimbursement:www.axumin.com/contact.html
DCFPyL is available at Johns Hopkins, NIH, and several
locations on the OSPREY trial, but they require at least 1 met detected through other imaging (CT, MRI or bone scan). They also give a NaF PET along with it. If you are looking at the OSPREY trial, it does not
exclude you because of prior hormone therapy in Cohort B, but no evidence of metastases is an exclusion.
Ga-68-PSMA-11 is available at UCLA, UCSF, Stanford, MSK, Cleveland Clinic and other
locations for an out-of-pocket fee (UCLA charges $2650).
Before you shell out a lot of money for any of these, consider what you would do with that information.
