Background: [18F]PSMA-1007, a positron emission tomography (PET) tracer, specifically targets prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), which is highly expressed in prostate cancer. PSMA-PET is effective especially for regional detection of biochemical recurrence, which significantly affects patient management. Herein, we established and optimized a one-step radiolabeling protocol to separate and purify [18F]PSMA-1007 with a CFN-MPS200 synthesizer for clinical application.
