Is this just a CT Scan done with contrast dye or something altogether different? If I have had one, it was not called that.

@gman007 No, this is more sophisticated than a CT scan or an MRI and is used to find NETs. Here is the link to take you to the explanation: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/68ga-dotatate-positron-emission-tomography-pet-now-at-mayo-clinic/
As NETs are difficult to find with traditional CT or MRI technology - this scan will find even very small NET cells. Teresa
