Dr. Schuster highlights the FDA approval of imaging agent flotufolastat F 18 in prostate cancer


"We're excited that the FDA approval of this radiotracer gives us yet more tools at our disposal to diagnose prostate cancer in all its forms, from early to late in the disease process," says David M. Schuster, MD, FACR.

In this episode, David M. Schuster, MD, FACR, highlights the recent FDA approval of flotufolastat F 18 (POSLUMA), a PSMA-PET imaging agent in prostate cancer. Schuster is a professor of radiology and imaging sciences and the director of the division of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.

Flotufolastat F 18 was granted FDA approval in May 2023, and became commercially available in June 2023. The agent is indicated for PET imaging of PSMA-positive lesions in men with prostate cancer with suspected metastasis who are candidates for initial definitive therapy or with suspected recurrence. The approval was based off of findings from the phase 3 SPOTLIGHT and LIGHTHOUSE trials, which Dr. Schuster’s highlights during the discussion.
