SINGAPORE: A more accurate imaging technique, known as F-Fluorocholine PET/CT, is now available to help doctors detect prostate cancer earlier.

The new technique uses PET/CT imaging with a compound called choline, that has been around for about a decade.

Choline helps doctors detect areas that suggest the presence of cancer and is injected into a patient’s vein just minutes before the scanning starts, as it works for only a short time.

Images of the prostate area will then be taken, followed by a body scan from the head to the thighs, to look for prostate cancer cells.

The new technique, which takes about 40 minutes, is currently available in Singapore only at the Singapore General Hospital.

It was introduced in August 2011 and close to 50 patients have undergone the new scan.

Dr Andrew Tan, Associate Consultant at SGH’s Department of Nuclear Medicine and PET, said the new imaging technique fills in the gap to help diagnostic treatment.

Conventionally, prostate cancer is detected through a physical examination and a blood test to detect elevated Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels.

Doctors then recommend a biopsy of the prostate if the tests indicate the presence of cancer.

From there, doctors will use the various findings to determine how far the cancer has spread.

With the new scan, Dr Tan said they are now able to detect microscopic areas of cancer.

This enhances the staging process, which helps in treating prostate cancer.

Dr Tan added that worldwide, 1,000 patients have undergone the new scan and no side effects are known.

Still, the new technique has its drawbacks.

Such a scan will set the patient back by S$2,600 a pop.

And as it’s operator-dependent, the scan is not able to detect about 10-15 per cent of the cases and may show false-positives or false-negatives.

Dr Tan also said that only two groups of patients need such specific scans.

The first – patients who’ve undergone treatment and a recurrence is suspected.

The other – those with high risks of disease spread to other parts of the body.

Prostate cancer is the third most common cancer among Singapore men and four in 100 patients die from the disease.

More than 500 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed every year.

The exact cause of prostate cancer is unknown but men who are over the age of 55, with a high animal fat and red meat diet, are more susceptible.

Common symptoms include urinary difficulties, frequent lower back or hips pain, and blood in the urine.

How is cancer diagnosed?

A variety of tests is needed tp diagnose cancer. A patient usually requires a thorough history and physical examination along with diagnostic testing. Many tests are needed to determine whether a person has cancer, or if another condition (such as an infection) is mimicking the symptoms of cancer.

Diagnostic testing is used to confirm or eliminate the presence of disease, and to plan for and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment. Sometimes it is necessary to repeat testing when a person’s condition has changed, if a sample collected was not of good quality, or an abnormal test result needs to be confirmed.

Diagnostic procedures for cancer may include imaging, laboratory tests (including tests for tumor markers), tumor biopsy, endoscopic examination, surgery, or genetic testing.

What are the different types of laboratory tests?

Clinical chemistry uses chemical processes to measure levels of chemical components in body fluids and tissues. The most common specimens used in clinical chemistry are blood and urine.

Many different tests exist to detect and measure almost any type of chemical component in blood or urine. Components may include blood glucose, electrolytes, enzymes, hormones, lipids (fats), other metabolic substances, and proteins.

The following are some of the more common laboratory tests:

  • blood tests
    A variety of blood tests are used to check the levels of substances in the blood that indicate how healthy the body is and whether infection is present. For example, blood tests revealing elevated levels of waste products, such as creatinine or blood urea nitrogen (BUN), indicate that the kidneys are not working efficiently to filter those substances out. Other tests check the presence of electrolytes – chemical compounds such as sodium and potassium that are critical to the body’s healthy functioning. Coagulation studies determine how quickly the blood clots.A complete blood count (CBC) measures the size, number, and maturity of the different blood cells in a specific volume of blood. This is one of the most common tests performed. Red blood cells are important for carrying oxygen and fighting anemia and fatigue; the hemoglobin portion of the CBC measures the oxygen carrying capacity of the red blood cells while the hematocrit measures the percentage of red blood cells in the blood. White blood cells fight infection. Increased numbers of white blood cells, therefore, may indicate the presence of an infection. Platelets prevent the body from bleeding and bruising easily.
  • urinalysis
    Urinalysis breaks down the components of urine to check for the presence of drugs, blood, protein, and other substances. Blood in the urine (hematuria) may be the result of a benign (noncancerous) condition, but it can also indicate an infection or other problem. High levels of protein in the urine (proteinuria) may indicate a kidney or cardiovascular problem.

tumor markers
Tumor markers are substances either released by cancer cells into the blood or urine or substances created by the body in response to cancer cells. Tumor markers are used to evaluate how well a patient has responded to treatment and to check for tumor recurrence.
