#201 Comparison of 18F-DOPA, 68Ga-Somatostatin Analogues and 18F-FDG PET-CT in Patients with Recurrent Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: Various PET tracers have been proposed for detection of recurrent disease in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). No data have been reported comparing 18F-DOPA and 68Ga-somatostin analogues (SA) in MTC.

#2156 Two Cases Synchronous Atypical Parathyroid Adenomas and Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: A literature review revealed a prevalence of approximately 3% of nonmedullary thyroid cancer, which was found in patients operated on for primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). Papillary thyroid carcinomas(PTC) is a malignant epithelial tumour. PTC represent up to 87% of all thyroid carcinomas. Atypical parathyroid adenoma(APA) are a subset of parathyroid neoplasms that exhibit some of the features of parathyroid carcinoma but lack unequivocal invasive growth. APA represents about 0,5-4% of cases of pHPT. As a group, they may be considered tumors of uncertain malignant potential.

#1299 Clinical Value of Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy in the Management of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma (MTC) is a rare form of thyroid cancer. It represents 5 to 10 % of these cancers. MTC grows from specialized thyroid cells called para-follicular cells, or C-cells that secrete a hormone called calcitonin. Its prognosis is usually good. Recurrences can occur, requiring lifelong surveillance.

#484 Diagnostic Accuracy of Gallium-68 Somatostatin Receptor Positron Emission Tomography in Patients with Thoracic and Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Meta-Analysis
Introduction: Gallium-68 somatostatin receptor (SMSR) positron emission tomography (PET) is a valuable diagnostic tool for patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET). To date, a meta-analysis about the diagnostic accuracy of this functional imaging method is lacking.
