68Ga-PSMA PET/CT in Detecting Prostate Cancer Recurrence in Patients With Elevated PSA After Initial Treatment

The purpose of this research study is to see if recurrent prostate cancer can be identified using a special procedure called a positron emission tomography (PET) scan. PET/CT is used to describe information regarding the function, as well as location and size of a tumor.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
