Choline C-11 Injection Finds Prostate Cancer

November 8, 2012

Now Mayo Clinic has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval to produce and administer Choline C-11 Injection, an imaging agent used during a positron emission tomography (PET) scan to help detect sites of recurrent prostate cancer.
