68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT Imaging in Solitary Fibrous Tumor of the Pleura

Clin Nucl Med. 2017 Jun;42(6):e294-e296. doi: 10.1097/RLU.0000000000001648.

Abstract

Here we describe a 77-year-old man with a solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura showing increasing tracer uptake at Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT, demonstrating that solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura may overexpress somatostatin receptors, therefore mimicking neuroendocrine tumors at somatostatin receptor PET/CT.
