Ocular metastases secondary to carcinoid tumors: the utility of imaging with [(123)I]meta-iodobenzylguanidine and [(111)In]DTPA pentetreotide.

Abstract:

Ocular metastases from carcinoid tumors are considered rare. They can be the primary presentation of a carcinoid tumor or develop during the course of the disease. The extent of distant metastases from carcinoid tumors correlates with poor prognosis and survival; early detection of metastasis may change the overall management. Radiopharmaceutical-labeled imaging techniques have been widely applied for the detection and localization of such lesions based on isotope uptake by neuroendocrine tum...
