Unique Post-Treatment Services Does Sheba Provide?
We offer Lutetium-177, which is a “theranostic” approach – a combination of therapy with diagnostics. Lutetium-177 is used only on men who suffer from recalcitrant cancer. As a targeted treatment, it irradiates cancer cells without exposing the whole body to radiation, and it has demonstrated clinical effectiveness. Sheba Medical Center is one of a few medical centers in the world to offer Lutetium-177 to patients with advanced and metastatic prostate cancer.
What Special Oncology Technology
Does Sheba Have?
(prostate-specific membrane antigen / positron emission tomography) is a type of molecular imaging that can assess the extent and location of the cancer. The test results provide superior accuracy for designing personalized treatment. The scan is performed in a single day, and results are generally ready within 24 hours. To date, PET-PSMA is not available in the United States, but we have performed over 450 scans at Sheba for domestic and foreign patients – giving our staff plenty of experience.
