  • A 52-year-old man who had hypoglycaemia for 8 years was found to have endogenous hyperinsulinism indicating an insulinoma. Abdominal MRI, CT perfusion, endoscopic ultrasonography, and Tc-HYNIC-TOC SPECT/CT were negative. Thus, the patient was referred for Ga-NOTA-exendin-4 PET/CT with the approval of the Institutional Review Board of our hospital. As well as the intense physiological distribution in the kidneys and bladder due to urinary excretion, moderately elevated uptake is apparent in the… CONTINUE READING
