Molecular Imaging of Late Somatostatin Receptor–Positive Metastases of Renal Cell Carcinoma in the Pancreas by Radiolabeled 111In SRS Octreotide Scan : A Rare Differential Diagnosis to Multiple Primary Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1565

Introduction: Somatostatin-Receptor Scintigraphy (SRS) has a sensitivity and specificity for pancreatic NETs (pNETs) of 90 and 80% respectively. SRS is indicated as first staging procedure and one of the most sensitive imaging modalities for well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors, based on imaging of somatostatin receptors (SSRTs).
Aim(s): To report 111In SRS scan ability in detecting lesions of RCC origin.
Materials and methods: A radiolabeled 111In SRS scan was used.

#1078 Somatostatin Responsive ACTH and Precursor Excess in a Midgut Mesentery NET
Introduction: ACTH production from a midgut mesentery NET is extremely rare (1). A 62y old woman presented with hypokalaemia (2mmol/L) and hyperpigmentation, 11y after surgery of a pT3N1Mx non-functional G1 NET with SRS positive, non-resectable but stable, residual mass encasing mesenteric vessels. Serum cortisol (3261 nmol/L), ACTH (796 ng/L), CgA (530 pmol/L) and urine total cortisol metabolites (33920 µg/24h) including 14 sub-products indicated change of biological behaviour into a functioning NET. Pituitary or pulmonary sources were excluded

#1150 Platelet Serotonin But Not Dopamine Concentrations Are Lower in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor and Renal Cell Carcinoma Patients Compared to Healthy Individuals.
Introduction: Platelets carry VEGF-A, serotonin and dopamine. Serotonin stimulates and dopamine inhibits tumor angiogenesis. We hypothesized that platelets are activated in tumor vasculature and release angiogenic factors, resulting in lower platelet serotonin and dopamine.
