Diagnostic Accuracy of F-18-DOPA PET or PET/CT in Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Meta-Analysis Abstract #619

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.
Aim(s): To meta-analyze published data about the diagnostic accuracy of F-18-DOPA PET in patients with NETs.
Materials and methods: A comprehensive literature search of studies about F-18-DOPA PET or PET/CT in patients with proven or suspected NETs was performed in PubMed/MEDLINE, Embase and Scopus databases. Pooled sensitivity (SS) and specificity (SP) on a patient-based analysis and area under the ROC curve were calculated.

Introduction: Practical and economic challenges limit the widespread use of 68Ga-labeled somatostatin analog (SSA) PET, the current standard for somatostatin receptor imaging. A promising 18F-labeled SSA, Al18F-NOTA-octreotide (Al18F-OC), has recently been introduced.

#2987 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT as Tool for Diagnosis and Decision-Making Process of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Primary tumors in some patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET) cannot be found by conventional imaging as CT, MRI and scintigraphy. 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT (68Ga-PET) appears to have superior sensitivity, specifity, and better resolution than 99mTC-octreotide SPECT/TC (SSTR scintigraphy) and can improve decision-making process, however its cost is higher, and its availability is limited.
