Choline positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT), with both carbon 11 (11C) choline and fluorine 18 (18F) choline, is an increasingly used tool in the evaluation of patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer. It has allowed detection and localization of locally recurrent and metastatic lesions that were difficult or impossible to identify using more conventional modalities. Many of the patients followed for their prostate cancer are elderly and have a higher rate of non-prostate cancer lesions or malignancies. As our experience with choline PET/CT has grown, it has become apparent that many of these non-prostate cancer processes, both benign and malignant, can be detected.
