Potential impact of 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT on stereotactic radiotherapy planning of meningiomas

Potential impact of 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT on stereotactic radiotherapy planning of meningiomas 68 Ga-DOTATOC-PET enables delineation of SR-positive meningiomas and delivers additional information to both CT and MRI regarding the planning of stereotactic radiotherapy. The acquisition on a PET/CT scanner helps to estimate the relation of PET findings to anatomical structures and is especially useful for detection of osseous infiltration. 68 Ga-DOTATOC-PET also allows detection of additional lesions in patients with multiple meningiomas. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Springer Journals

Abstract

68 Ga-DOTATOC-PET enables delineation of SR-positive meningiomas and delivers additional information to both CT and MRI regarding the planning of stereotactic radiotherapy. The acquisition on a PET/CT scanner helps to estimate the relation of PET findings to anatomical structures and is especially useful for detection of osseous infiltration. 68 Ga-DOTATOC-PET also allows detection of additional lesions in patients with multiple meningiomas.
