In clinical routine somatostatin analogue positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) such as 68Ga-DOTA-Tyr-octreotide (DOTATOC)-PET/CT could substitute conventional 111In-Octreotide scintigraphy. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) for somatostatin receptor 2 (SSTR2) might be a tool to predict positivity of 68Ga-DOTATOC in patients where initial staging was not performed, e.g., in incidental findings. We therefore compared a score of SSTR2-IHC with the in vivo standard uptake value (SUV… CONTINUE READING
