Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy

Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy

See also octreotide scan – an imaging test used to find certain tumors, including NETs. Radioactive octreotide is injected into a vein and travels through the blood. A radiation-measuring device (gamma camera) detects the radioactive octreotide, and makes pictures showing where the tumor cells are in the body. Also called somatostatin receptor scintigraphy or SRS.
