PET Imaging Using Gallium-68 (68Ga) RM2. PET clinics Duan, H., Iagaru, A. 2022


Molecular imaging is advancing rapidly with promising new molecular targets emerging for theragnostic, ie, imaging and treatment with the same compound, to provide targeted, personalized medicine. Gastrin-releasing peptide receptors (GRPR) are overexpressed in prostate cancer. Gallium-68 (68Ga) RM2 is a GRPR antagonist and shows high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of primary prostate cancer and recurrent disease. However, compared with the widely used 68Ga-PSMA11 and 18F-DCFPyL, a discordance in uptake pattern is seen reflecting the heterogeneity in tumor biology of prostate cancer. In this review, we present the background, current status, and future perspectives of PET imaging using 68Ga-RM2.
