Gallium-68 prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography is now an established imaging technique that has been developed in response to inadequacies in standard-of-care imaging modalities to improve the detection of metastatic disease in prostate cancer. In light of the growing body of evidence, we summarised the data to date to provide clinicians with an overview of this imaging modality.
