Discussions about the RECIP Platform website, its organization, how it works, and how we can improve it.
Definition of original RECIP incorporated quantitative changes of
PSMA-VOL calculated using semi-automatic software for whole-body tumor
segmentation in PSMA PET. However, this process can still be time
consuming with an average time of 10 minutes per scan. Hence,
quantification of PSMA-VOL is not feasible yet for use in daily
practice. Nevertheless, standardized treatment response evaluation in
metastatic prostate cancer in clinical routine using next-generation
PSMA imaging is an urgent need. In a recent study published in
Radiology, RECIP investigators found that changes in PSMA-VOL determined
visually by five board-certified nuclear medicine physicians had 95%
correlation with quantitative changes in PSMA-VOL calculated using
semi-automatic tumor segmentation software. These findings suggest that
RECIP assessed by nuclear medicine physicians (Practical RECIP) can be
used in daily practice.
