Synergic Value of 68Ga-DOTATOC PET and MRI in NET Patients Undergoing Simultaneous 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/MRI Scan


Introduction: The simultaneous acquisition of 68Ga-DOTATOC PET and functional MRI has relevant implication in the field of Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs).

Aim(s): The aim of the present study is to evaluate the synergic value of fully hybrid 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/MRI in the management of NETs.

Materials and methods: 43 pts with NET underwent 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/MRI (September 2018- November 2019) for staging (30 pts) or restaging (13 pts). Whole-body PET/MRI scan was followed by a diagnostic abdominal MRI. PET scans were analyzed by an experienced Nuclear Medicine Physician and the diagnostic MRI by an expert Radiologist. For each 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/MRI scan, an additional analysis combining PET and MRI findings (concordant and/or discordant) was performed.
