The value of radiolabelled MIBG and octreotide in the diagnosis and management of neuroendocrine tumours.

Abstract:

Neuroendocrine tumours have a particular tendency to express functional receptors and/or uptake mechanisms. Radionuclides, such as 123I-MIBG, which is taken up by a specific uptake mechanism, and 111In-pentetreotide, which binds to somatostatin receptors, present an imaging modality based on these physiological characteristics rather on purely anatomical alterations. They have been successfully utilised for both the diagnosis and staging of neuroendocrine tumours, as they can identify lesions...
