Sensitivity of Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Receptor (GLP1-R) SPECT/CT, PET/CT and MRI for the Localization of Benign Insulinomas: Interim Analysis of a Prospective Imaging Efficacy Study Abstract #1802

Introduction: 40 patients (pat.) with positive whipple trias were enrolled (ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT02127541).
Aim(s): The study aim is to compare the detection rate of GLP-1R PET/CT, SPECT/CT and MRI in pat. with suspicion for an insulinoma. We report preliminary results.
Materials and methods: A standardized contrast enhanced 3T MRI was performed. Then pat. received SPECT/CT at 4 and 72h p.i. of 111In-DOTA-exendin-4 and a PET/CT 2,5h p.i. of 68Ga-DOTA-exendin-4 in a randomized cross-over order. 3 independent blinded nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists reviewed the scans. Standard of comparison was the histological diagnosis.

#1057 Localisation of Insulinoma and Beta-Cells: Comparison of Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Receptor (GLP1-R) SPECT/CT, PET/CT and MRI. Preliminary Results of a Prospective Clinical Study.
Introduction: SPECT/CT imaging with GLP1-R specific radiotracers like 111In-DOTA-exendin-4 have already proved to be a useful tool for the preoperative localisation of insulinomas. PET/CT has several advantages over SPECT/CT: lower radiation exposure, less time consumption and higher spatial resolution.

#1870 Detection of Metastatic Insulinoma with 68Ga-NODAGA-Exendin-4 PET/CT in a Young Child – A Case Report
Introduction: Malignant insulinomas are extremely rare in children. Localizing metastases of insulinoma is challenging. Imaging modalities like CT and MRI show limited results. Somatostatin-receptor (SSTR) imaging (SRS) performs better. However, a subgroup of malignant insulinoma lack SSRT-2 and can, therefore, not be localized using SRS. We propose that in these cases GLP-1R imaging, using the stable GLP-1 analog exendin, could play an important role.

#477 Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Receptor (GLP-1R) Imaging for the Preoperative Localization of Benign Insulinomas in 30 Patients
Introduction: Biochemical diagnosis of endogenous hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia is straightforward. Surgical removal of an insulinoma is hampered by difficulties to localize it using conventional radiological procedures. In vitro data suggest that human insulinoma cells exhibit a high density of GLP-1R. 111In-exendin-4 is an 111In labeled GLP-1R agonist that binds with high affinity to GLP-1R and may be helpful in localizing insulinomas.
