Introduction: In spite of low frequency ( 4 cases in 1 million population), insulimoma is a significant pathology because hypoglycemia causes severe neurologic lesions and death.

Introduction: Head and neck paragangliomas (HNPGLs) are non-producing neuroendocrine tumors, alhough 19-28% of patients have an increased dopamine production. The high sensitivity of 18F-DOPA PET also shows that these tumors might be able to synthesize catecholamines.

Introduction: Palliative external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) is routinely used to control symptoms and disease progression in metastatic malignancies, but there is limited data in metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (NET).

Introduction: Insulinomas are usually small, single tumors. Precise preoperative localization of the tumor is essential. Imaging techniques like CT and MRI have limited sensitivity and also somatostatin receptor (SSTR) imaging is not specific. Exendin specifically binds the GLP-1 receptor (GLP-1R), which is markedly upregulated in insulinomas. 68Ga-DOTA-exendin-4 PET/CT has been shown to be feasible in detecting insulinomas. Replacing DOTA by NODAGA ensures higher specific activities. We propose 68Ga-NODAGA-exendin-4 PET/CT as a promising new method for improved localization of insulinomas.
