Scintigraphy with iodine-123 or indium-111 labelled somatostatin analogue (octreotide) was performed in 52 patients diagnosed as, suspected of, or at risk of having carcinoid tumours. In 32 of 37 (86%) patients in whom histologically proven carcinoids were still present, known tumour sites were visualized. Using 123I-coupled octreotide, 24 of 40 (60%) known extrahepatic sites were visualized, whereas all of 12 (100%) extrahepatic lesions were visualized after injection of 111In-coupled… CONTINUE READING
