Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy with 99mTc-HYNIC-TATE in visualization of non-radioiodine-avid differentiated thyroid carcinoma

Podgajny Z , Kaminski G , Szalus N , Kowalczyk A , Pietrzykowski J , Jaroszuk A , Siekierzynski M

Introduce: Lack of radioiodine uptake in Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma (DTC) is a huge diagnostic and therapeutic problem. This sign is associated with worse prognosis. In patients with elevated thyroglobulin levels and with no evidence of disease on radioiodine scintigraphy, scintigraphy with somatostatin analogs can be an alternative imaging modality.The aim: Assessment of scintigraphy with the somatostatin analog 99mTc-HYNIC-TATE to visu...
