Procedure: 185 MBq of Ga-68 octreotate was administered intravenously and images obtained from the vertex of the skull to the upper thighs with a dedicated PET/CT. Ga-68 octreotate uptake time = 76 min.
Findings: There cis intense GaTate uptake in the pancreatic body, corresponding to the hypervascular mass on CT.
No GaTate avid retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy or further abnormal areas of GaTate uptake, including in the liver, to suggest octreotate avid metastases.
Physiological octreotate activity is demonstrated in the salivary glands, pituitary gland, thyroid, liver, spleen, bowel, kidneys and urinary bladder. Stable non-avid cysts in the left hepatic lobe.
Conclusion: Well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumour involving the pancreatic body.
