In patients with neuroendocrine tumours (NETs), a combination of morphological imaging and nuclear medicine techniques is mandatory for primary tumour visualization, staging and evaluation of somatostatin receptor status. CT and MRI are well-suited for discerning small lesions that might escape detection by single photon emission tomography (SPECT) or PET, as well as for assessing the local invasiveness of the tumour or the response to therapy. Somatostatin receptor imaging, by 111In… CONTINUE READING
