The Role of 68Ga- DOTA-NOC PET in Evaluating Neuroendocrine Tumors: Real-World Experience from Single Lebanese Institution. Abstract #1292

Introduction: Functional imaging with somatostatin analogues have been commonly used in NETs
Aim(s): To assess the role of 68Ga-DOTA-NOC PET-CT as a primary diagnostic tool for staging and follow-up of NETs
Materials and methods: This is a retrospective study performed between 2010 and 2015, including patients having done PET for reasons related to NET:clinical, biological or radiological suspicion; staging; follow up of a primary tumor

#887 Detection Limitation of Occult NET Using Gallium-68 Dotatoc Scan Plus FDG PET
Introduction: The modalities detection of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET) includes sonogram, abdominal CT and MRI, but the detection rate is limited. Iodium-111 Octreotide scan is another choice. Ga-68 Dotatoc scan is very rapid and more sensitive than Octreoscan. The Ga-68 Dotatoc scan plus FDG-PET is useful for detecting active NETs.

#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.

#1309 Dual 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose/68Gallium DOTATATE (FDG/DOTA) PET Predicts Overall Survival in Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET)
Introduction: 68Ga-DOTATATE (DOTA) and FDG PET have been utilised in NETs to aid diagnosis, prognostication and guide management. FDG PET avidity is associated with poor prognosis, but the prognostic significance of dual FDG/DOTA grading has not been explored.
