The speed with which PSMA PET-CT has been adopted for prostate cancer imaging is unprecedented. This technique's clinical value in recurrent disease is uncontested, but its role in initial staging is unclear. Two studies now provide important data on the value of PSMA PET-CT at this management stage.
