What happens during a PSMA PET Scan?
Soon after your arrival at our office and following a brief patient interview to gather history, an intravenous line is started and the PSMA “PSMA” agent is injected into your vein. After allowing approximately 60 minutes for the PSMA to distribute throughout your body, you will then be asked to use the restroom to empty your bladder. You will then be brought into the scan room for your PET scan. Following your scan, you will receive a disc containing your original full data set from your scan. You are then free to go about the rest of your day. The total process in and out of the office typically lasts about 1.5 hours.
