Association of somatostatin receptor 2 immunohistochemical expression with [111In]-DTPA octreotide scintigraphy and [68Ga]-DOTATOC PET/CT in neuroendocrine tumors Abstract #143

Introduction: In the absence of preoperative somatostatin receptor (sst) scans, knowledge of immunohistochemical sst2 tumor expression may help in predicting the success of somatostatin analogue-based follow-up studies and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
Aim(s): We studied the association between sst immunostaining and tracer uptake in [111In]-DTPA octreotide (DTPAOC) scintigraphy and [68Ga]-DOTA-D-Phe(1)-Tyr(3)-Octreotide (DOTATOC) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT).
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of 36 NET patients. In 40 tumors, immunohistochemical sst2, sst3, and sst5 expression was analysed using a pathological scoring, applying monoclonal (sst2) or polyclonal antibodies (sst3, sst5). In 14 lesions, [111In]-DTPAOC uptake was assessed by a semiquantitative score. In 26 tumors, [68Ga]-DOTATOC PET/CT was quantified using an uptake score and maximal standard uptake value (SUVmax).

#2683 Clinicopathological Features and Prognostic Analysis of 227 Cases with Well-Differentiated Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (g-NENs) are a group of rare tumors with a strong heterogeneity, subdivided as well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NETs, type 1-3 g-NETs) and poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma(NECs). WHO classification(2019) for digestive system tumours has carried out a new classification and grading criteria for NENs of the gastrointestinal tract recently, there is very few relevant clinical data based on this new classification, especially for gastric NETs(g-NETs).

#2706 A New Possibility in SI-NET Surgery by Using a New β- Probe and 90Y-DOTATOC: A Pilot Study
Introduction: In neuroendocrine tumor (NET), complete surgery could better the prognosis of this disease: radioguided surgery (RGS) with beta-radioisotopes, as 90Y, is a novel approach focused on developing a new probe which, detecting electrons and operating with low background, provides a clearer delineation of the margins of lesions with low radiation exposition for surgeons.
