The pattern of SSTRs expression in neuroendocrine neoplasms determines the possibility of the detection of the primary tumour and distant metastases, the application of radio-guided surgery (RGS) and the outcome of the treatment with itrium or lutetium labeled somatostatin analogues. The frequency and expression pattern of each subtype of SSTRs not only vary considerably in different NET but also in each patient.The aim of the study was to assess the SST...
