Biodistribution and Radiation Dosimetry of a Novel 18F-Fluoroethyl Triazole [Tyr3] Octreotate Analogue for PET Imaging Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumours. Abstract #1251

Introduction: Despite advances, detection and quantification of NET activity by imaging remains a challenge.
Aim(s): We present the first in-man study of 18F-fluoroethyl triazole [Tyr3] octreotate (18F-FET-βAG TOCA) in NET patients to evaluate biodistribution, dosimetry and safety.
Materials and methods: 18F-FET-βAG TOCA was synthesized via the click reaction. Nine patients were enrolled into study. Eight patients with sporadic NET and 1 MEN1 syndrome. Mean age 56 yr (range 35-73 yr) and weight 75.2kg (91.2-66.3 kg).Patients underwent whole body PET-CT multi-bed scanning over 4h and venous blood samples were taken at specific intervals to measure 18F radioactivity concentration in blood and plasma. Regions of interest were drawn, to derive individual and mean organ residence times; effective dose (ED) was calculated with OLINDA 1.1

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)

Introduction: A specific feature of NETs is amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation; this is the rationale for using PET with F-18-DOPA, a cathecholamine precursor, in diagnosis of NETs.

#762 Long-Term Follow-Up of MEN-1 Patients with Non-Operated Small < 2 cm Non-Functional Neuroendocrine Tumor of the Pancreas (NF-PET)
Introduction: Previous investigations from the GTE demonstrated that the risk to develop metastasis and/or death was very small for MEN-1 patients with NF-PET < 2 cm. However, the follow-up was only 3.3 years for the non-operated patients.
