UNLABELLED (111)In-DOTA-exendin-4 SPECT/CT has been shown to be highly efficient in the detection of insulinomas. We aimed at determining whether novel PET/CT imaging with [Nle(14),Lys(40)(Ahx-DOTA-(68)Ga)NH2]exendin-4 ((68)Ga-DOTA-exendin-4) is feasible and sensitive in detecting benign insulinomas. METHODS (68)Ga-DOTA-exendin-4 PET/CT and(More)
BACKGROUND Insulinomas are rare tumors, in the majority of cases best treated by surgical resection. Preoperative localization of insulinoma is challenging. The more precise the preoperative localization the less invasive and safer is the resection. The purpose of the study is to check the impact of a new technique to localize insulinoma on the surgical(More)
A 49-year-old female presented to our Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) centre with recurrent severe and disabling hypoglycaemia. She had previously been extensively investigated with a clinical and biochemical diagnosis of endogenous hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia although the source of hormonal hypersecretion could not be localized with MRI, EUS and(More)
