Association between Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Biomarkers and Tumor Burden Based on Total 68Ga-DOTATATE-Avid Tumor Volume (TV) Measurements Abstract #1857

Introduction: No study has yet assessed the utility of biochemical biomarkers for evaluating NET burden using 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT.
Aim(s): To determine which markers are associated with total NET burden.
Materials and methods: A retrospective analysis of a prospective database of patients with NETs (n=232). Fasting plasma chromogranin A (CgA), neuron-specific enolase (NSE), gastrin, glucagon, vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and pancreatic polypeptide (PP), and 24-hour urinary 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5HIAA) levels were measured.

#1855 Total 68Ga-DOTATATE-Avid Tumor Volume (TV) Predicts Progression-Free Survival (PFS) and Disease-Specific Mortality (DSM) in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: Patients with NETs have divergent survival, even when having the same site of primary tumor, tumor stage and grade. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT has emerged as a sensitive imaging modality for detecting NETs.

#289 Gallium-68 DOTATATE PET CT Frequently Changes Patient Management or Staging When Compared with Indium-111 Octreotide in the Assessment of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: 68Ga-DOTATATE PET CT offers higher resolution than previous octreotide-labelled scintigraphic techniques, and the literature suggests increased sensitivity for the localization and staging of NETs.

#351 Comparison of 68Ga-Somatostatin Analogues, 18F-DOPA and 18F-FDG PET/CT in Patients with Recurrent Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: Early detection of recurrences is a crucial step in the management of patients (pts) with medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). Currently, there is growing interest for PET tracers in MTC such as: 18F-FDG (reflecting glucose metabolism), 18F-DOPA (reflecting amine decarboxylation), 68Ga-somatostatin analogues (reflecting somatostatin receptors expression)
