Treatment of high-risk prostate cancer (HRPCa) is challenging. Local staging and metastatic evaluation are important for the patient management. Recently, prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-based imaging modalities such as PSMA PET/CT and PET/MRI have received significant attention for detection of recurrent prostate cancer sites with elevated prostate-specific antigen levels, after therapy. Current evidence suggests that these imaging modalities may also have a role for the management of patients with HRPCa. In this review, we discuss PSMA-based imaging modalities in the management of patients with HRPCa.
