There Purpose The aim of this study was to prospectively compare was no significant difference between PET/CT and CI for the the detection rate of Ga-DOTATATE PET-CT with total number of detected lesions (p = 0.734). PET/CT detected In-octreotide SPECT-CT and conventional imaging (CI) more lesions than SPECT/CT regardless of the organ. PET/CT in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) patients with in- detected more bone lesions but missed some neck nodal metas- creased calcitonin (Ctn) levels but negative CI after tases evidenced by CI. The number of lesions per region dem- thyroidectomy. onstrated by PET/CT and CI were similar in the other sites.
