Singer Joerg , Lincke Thomas , Sabri Osama , Paschke Ralf

Recent reports confirmed increased SSTR expression in the thyroid in some cases of GravesÂ’ disease and hot nodules. It is still not known, whether SSTRs can frequently be found in other thyroid pathologies or normal thyroid glands. Therefore, we performed a systematic analysis of Ga-68-Dotatoc PET Scans for their thyroid image.Eighty-three consecutive patients undergoing Ga-68-Dotatoc PET were analysed for their relative thyroid uptake by ROI techni...
