Paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors that may arise anywhere along the paraganglial system, with a high frequency of hereditary forms or multifocal disease. Most often, paragangliomas are benign and progress slowly, but metastases may occur in about 10% of patients. In this respect, nuclear imaging in combination with anatomic imaging may be required to fully delineate the extent of the disease. PET has been increasingly used in imaging paraganglioma, paralleled by great efforts toward… CONTINUE READING
