Post Treatment

Typically if you are going through the PRLT and check into the Zentralklinik on a Sunday, then you will be discharged sometime on a Friday. On that last day you normally go through one last gamma scan on the Nuclear Ward and then some patients get the FDG PET/CT scan following that. Those results need to be seen by Dr. Baum before you will have your final consultation.

The final consultation with Dr. Baum usually takes about 40-50 minutes. During this time, the preliminary results of the PRLT are explained by Dr. Baum. This covers the PRLT and related scans as well as the FDG PET/CT scan, if done. You are given a copy of the preliminary report and a CD with all the scan images included. Dr. Baum entertains all questions that patients have

Medical Information From Zentralklinik

After consultation with Dr. Baum, the patient will receive a preliminary written report covering their PSMA-68-Ga PET/CT scan, the administration of the PRLT and other medical tests performed. Also reviewed is the current staging and a follow-up appointment time for restaging, as appropriate. The patient also receives a CD with the 68-Ga scan images, some printed images from the scan and a letter for airport security.

If the patient is a US citizen

It is customary for Dr. Baum to meet with the patient at the time of discharge. At that time Dr. Baum discusses the initial observations on the effects of the PRLT and talks about next steps. This meeting usually includes a review of a preliminary report on the treatment that is provided to the patient, review of selected photo images made from the 68-Gallium-PSMA scan and a CD with all images from the 68-Gallium-PSMA scan.

Dr. Baum outlines the next steps for the patient in terms of blood lab

Blood Laboratory Work

Typically in the recommendations section of the patient's preliminary report all follow-up lab work is listed. Specific measurements may vary by patient, but in general, lab work is requested for:

• Blood

• Kidney Function

• Liver Function

• Some NET Bio-markers such as Cga and Seratonin

Dr Baum requests that all lab work results be emailed or faxed to him at his office

Most patients have their oncologist forward this information to Dr. Baum's Zentralklinik office.
