Detection of “Incidentalomas” on Brain and Body68Ga-DOTATOC-PET Scans: A Retrospective Study and Case Illustration

Abstract: Background/Aim: One of the main limitations of standard imaging modalities is microscopic tumor extension, which is often difficult to detect on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computer tomography (CT) in the early stages of the tumor. ( 68)Ga-DOTA(0)-Phe(1)-Tyr(3)-octreotide positronemission tomography/computed tomography ( 68 Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT) has shown efficacy in detecting lesions previously undiagnosed by neuroimaging modalities, such as MRI or CT, and has enabled the detection of multiple benign tu… Show more

“…Schwannomas are benign tumors that originate from Schwann cells of the cranial and peripheral nerves, and have a variable growth pattern (1). Clinical outcome after their surgical resection is related to extent of removal (2)(3)(4)(5)(6), which in the future could be assisted by new imaging modalities besides classic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (7). The goal of schwannoma resection is to control the tumor while preserving neurological function (8)(9)(10)(11).…”
