Abstract

Recent advances in novel functional imaging techniques such as PSMA PET may now offer the ability to identify small volume metastases which may otherwise go undetected. The treatment of these lesions is controversial, particularly in the oligometastatic state. We report the case of an abdominal wall metastasis detected with PSMA imaging which we treated with surgical excision. This resulted in an undetectable PSA 6 weeks post excision.
