111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy in the detection of insulinomas: importance of SPECT imaging.

UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to determine whether the systematic use of SPECT can increase the reported low sensitivity of somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS) in detecting insulinomas. METHODS Fourteen patients were evaluated. After 111In-pentetreotide injection (approximately 250 MBq intravenously), abdominal SPECT images were obtained at 4… CONTINUE READING
