OBJECTIVE. The objective of this article is to provide an illustrative tutorial showing the utility of 11C-choline PET/CT for imaging prostate cancer. CONCLUSION. Carbon-11-labeled choline PET/CT is a powerful adjunct to the currently available imaging modalities for evaluating prostate cancer. As with any diagnostic method, false-positives and false-negatives occur. However, these diagnostic errors can be reduced if readers are familiar with the normal and abnormal patterns of 11C-choline distribution in the body.
