Pancreatic Uptake by 18F-FDOPA PET/CT in Patients With Hypoglycemia After Gastric Bypass Surgery Compared With Controls With or Without Carbidopa Pretreatment.

Abstract

PURPOSE The use of Fluorine-labeled dihydroxy-phenyl-alanine (F-FDOPA) PET/CT in patients with hypoglycemia suspected to be caused by pancreatic disease can be helpful to localize the source of excess insulin production.
