PURPOSE Tc-99m depreotide is a peptide analogue of a somatostatin receptor that preferentially binds to somatostatin receptors 2, 3, and 5. Many lung tumors may express these receptors to a greater extent than normal tissue. Tc 99m depreotide study is a noninvasive, receptor-specific imaging agent that is used to assess malignant versus benign single… (More)
