Introduction: Prostate cancer is currently the second leading cause of cancer death in men in Europe and developed countries, with about 300,000 new cases diagnosed each year. The respective roles of multipara metric MRI and nuclear medicine by PET with choline or other tracers for prostate cancer (CaP) exploration have expanded in recent years thanks to technical advances and the development of functional imaging. Methods: From October 2017 to December 2018, 20 patients were included retrospectively to search local localization of prostate cancer with or without nodal and bone metastasis. The indication was 8/20 for initial assessment and 12/20 for biologic recurrence after prostatectomy or radiotherapy. all benefited a multi parametric pelvic MRI (T2, diffusion, dynamic after injection) and a choline PET at the nuclear medicine department, XXX center using PET-CT (GE Discovery 710..
