Test Name

PSA, Post Prostatectomy

CPT Code(s)

84153

Methodology

Immunochemiluminometric Assay (ICMA)

Limitations

Heterophil antibodies may produce falsely-elevated results.

Reference Range(s)

<0.10 ng/mL After radical prostatectomy
≤4.0 ng/mL In healthy males without prostatectomy

PSA values obtained with different assay methods or kits cannot be used interchangeably.

Clinical Significance

For post-prostatectomy patients. The lower limit of accurate quantification for this assay is 0.02 ng/mL. PSA values less than 0.02 ng/mL cannot be accurately measured and will be reported as less than 0.02 ng/mL. Specimens with PSA levels below the lower limit of accurate quantification should be considered as negative. In patients with a negative result for post-prostatectomy PSA, serial monitoring of PSA levels at regular intervals, along with physical examinations and other tests, may help to detect recurrent prostate cancer.
