"In a recent media release, Lantheus Holdings announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had approved the imaging agent known as piflufolastat F 18 Injection (also known as Pylarify® or more commonly just “PyL”) as a PSMA-based PET imaging agent for identification of prostate cancer.

This agent is actually approved for use in two types of patient: men suspected of having either metastatic or recurrent forms of prostate cancer — even if there is no sign of metastasis on a bone or normal CT scan."
