This is a quite informative paper from Practical Radiation Oncology, giving a good overview of the newer imaging technologies being developed to identify the location of recurrent prostate cancer before beginning salvage radiation therapy.
Prostate cancer–specific PET radiotracers: A review on the clinical utility in recurrent disease
I’ll comment in a separate post on where my head is at after receiving my latest PSA results.

How do I get the paper you referenced? I am in almost the same boat you are. On the wait list for SRT. PSA skyrocketing. At .17 at the moment. Please keep up your blog. It is great. Glad to know I am not alone.
Sorry to hear that you’re in the same boat that I am. It’s maddening, isn’t it?
As far as the article is concerned, the second paragraph in the post above is actually a hyperlink that you can click on that will take you to the article. If you still can’t access it, please use the “Contact” link in my menu at the top of the page and I can email you a PDF version of the paper.
I’d be interested in hearing more about your own experience as you move down this path.
Thanks, too, for the kind words about the blog.
All the best,
