Fabio Almeida, M.D.

Dr. Almeida most recently spoke at the Prostate Forum on February 25, 2016.

His subject was: Carbon -11 Acetate PET/CT Imaging of the Prostate - an update.

Dr. Almeida will update results of his research with PET/CT scans using Carbon-11-Acetate for imaging.  Although other tracers have been used, the C-11-Acetate has demonstrated great promise for earlier detection of recurring prostate cancer.

PET/CT scan using C-11-Acetate can detect between distant metastases, with a high degree of specificity thus permitting an optimum treatment choice. MRI/CT scans typically used glucose, which has an affinity for tumor. Instead, Dr. Almeida uses C-11-Acetate that preferentially seeks a substance called FAS which is over-expressed in many tumors, including prostate.

Dr. Almeida is the Medical Director, Phoenix Molecular Imaging, Phoenix, Arizona
