Abstract:A 38-year-old woman with known von Hippel-Lindau syndrome underwent In-111 pentetreotide (OctreoScan) scintigraphy to evaluate a suspected pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor. The patient had undergone surgical resection of a left adrenal pheochromocytoma and a large right cerebellar hemangiobl

[111In-DTPA0]-octreotide is a radiopharmaceutical with a great potential for the visualization of SSTR positive tumors. The overall sensitivity of SRI to localize neuroendocrine tumors is high. In a number of neuroendocrine tumor types, inclusion of SRI in the localization or staging procedure may be very rewarding, either in terms of cost-effectiveness, patient management, or quality of life. The value of SRI in patients with other tumors, like breast cancer, malignant lymphomas, or in patients...

Abstract The neurocutaneous syndromes or phakomatoses are a heterogeneous group of congenital disorders primarily involving structures derived from the embryological neuroectoderm. All of the syndromes involve the central nervous system (CNS). Peripheral nerves, skin and other organ systems may also be involved. Twenty to 30 disorders are now classified as neurocutaneous syndromes. This article reviews the intra-cranial imaging features of some of the commonest.Herron, J. (2000). Clinical Radiol...

Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome (OMIM 193300) is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by deletions or mutations in a tumor suppressor gene mapped to human chromosome 3p25. It is characterized clinically by vascular tumors, including retinal and central nervous system hemangioblastomas (cerebellar, spinal, and brain stem). Hemangioblastomas are benign and do not metastasize. Other features include cysts of the kidneys, liver, and pancreas. Clear cell renal cell carcinoma occurs in up to 70% of ...

The somatostatin analogue [111In-DTPA-d-Phe1]-octreotide (111In-octreotide) allows scintigraphic visualization of somatostatin receptor-expressing tissue. While it is well known that a large variety of tissues express somatostatin receptors and 111In-octreotide scintigraphy has a clearly defined role in various neuroendocrine diseases, the clinical value of 111In-octreotide scintigraphy in brain tumours is still under clinical investigation. In 124 patients with 141 brain lesions (63 meningiomas...

Somatostatin receptors are expressed in meningiomas and lowgrade gliomas, raising the hope that scintigraphy with 111 In-DTPA-D-Phe1-octreotide might be helpful in the in vivo localization, differential diagnosis and postoperative/postradiotherapy brain tumor follow-up. Methods: Indium-111-DTPA-D-Phel-octreotide scintigraphy and brain scintigraphy using 99m Tc-DTPA as a nonspecific tracer for blood-brain barrier integrity were simultaneously performed in 60 patients with CNS tumors using dual-is...

von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an autosomal dominant disorder that causes retinal hemangioblastomas, hemangioblastomas of the central nervous system, endolymphatic sac tumors, renal cell carcinomas, pancreatic cysts and tumors, pheochromocytomas, and epididymal cystadenomas, among other less common manifestations. Although this entity has been recognized for almost 70 years, recent developments in the genetics and imaging of VHL disease have greatly improved understanding of the disease and ...

Various tumours, classically specified as either neuroendocrine or non-neuroendocrine, contain high numbers of somatostatin receptors, which enable in vivo localization of the primary tumour and its metastases by scintigraphy with the radiolabelled somatostatin analogue octreotide. In addition granulomas and autoimmune processes can be visualized because of local accumulation of somatostatin receptor-positive activated mononuclear leucocytes. In many instances a positive scintigram predicts a fa...

Hippel-Lindau disease is an auto-somal-dominant disorder characterized by tumors arising from the central nervous system and abdominal viscera. Because of its progressive nature, frequent multisystem radiologic evaluation of affected persons and family members at risk is desirable for early detection and treatment. During a 2-year study, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the head, spine, and abdomen was used for screening and follow-up in 26 members of nine families with the disease. In additio...

In-111 pentetreotide (Octreoscan) is a radiolabeled somatostatin analog with high binding affinity to somatostatin receptors (SSTR) used in somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS). Pentetreotide labelled with In-111 is widely used due to its high affinity to SSTR 2 and 5. SSTR are expressed on neuroendocrine cells as well as several non-neural and non-endocrine cells with varying levels of density. We retrospectively reviewed articles and publications related to octreoscan accumulation in sites...

von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a familial cancer syndrome characterized by the development of a variety of malignant and benign tumors, including epididymal cystadenomas. We report a case of a VHL patient with bilateral epididymal cystadenomas who was evaluated with Ga DOTATATE PET/CT, showing intensely increased activity (SUVmax, 21.6) associated with the epididymal cystadenomas, indicating cell-surface overexpression of somatostatin receptors. The presented case supports the usefulness of ...

OBJECTIVE. Similar to neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) at other sites, a wide array of intracranial tumors also express somatostatin receptors (SSTRs). This expression can be exploited for both imaging and therapy. The introduction of 68Ga-labeled tetraazacyclododecanetetraacetic acid (DOTA)–peptide PET/CT has given new dimension to SSTR-based imaging because of its improved sensitivity and excellent spatial resolution. CONCLUSION. However, in contrast to gastropancreatic and bronchopulmonary NETs, ...

: A case of Von-Hippel Lindau (VHL) disease has been studied using 68Ga-DOTA-NOC PET/CT. PET/CT demonstrated the presence of somatostatin receptors within 2 focal areas in the cerebellum corresponding to the lesions detected by MRI. Considering the heterogeneous lesions localizations in VHL disease, PET/CT may be a useful imaging modality for diagnosing lesions of central nervous system and neuroendocrine lesions and for direct demonstration of somatostatin receptors for targeted treatment.
