Total 68Ga-DOTATATE-Avid Tumor Volume (TV) Predicts Progression-Free Survival (PFS) and Disease-Specific Mortality (DSM) in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Abstract #1855

Introduction: Patients with NETs have divergent survival, even when having the same site of primary tumor, tumor stage and grade. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT has emerged as a sensitive imaging modality for detecting NETs.
Aim(s): To determine if 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT imaging has any prognostic utility in patients with NETs.
Materials and methods: Patients with NETs (n=184) were enrolled in a prospective study of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT imaging and comprehensive biochemical analysis. 68Ga-DOTATATE TV was measured in all participants. The primary outcome measures were PFS and DSM during a median follow-up time of 18 months (range 4–35).

#540 Diagnositc and Prognostic Role of 68GA-DOTATATE PET in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Octreoscan (OS) is currently the gold standard for diagnosis of somatostatin receptor positive NET but it is limited by a lower spatial resolution and physiological uptake noises. DOTATATE is a somatostatin analogue, radiolabelled with 68Ga and adapted for PET imaging.
