After posting my response, I did go and do some research and it sounds like a much more effective locator of NET's than a simple CT scan. My tumor that required the removal of much of my pancreas was not seen on a recent scan and was found by doctors who were going in endoscpically for a celiac plexus block and found the tumor once inside. I would appreciate the more precise findings of the 68gallium scan

@gman007 I understand - my NETs were also found endoscopically. Perhaps you should talk with your doctor/oncologist regarding the 68Gallium scan. There is one center in my state that has this diagnostic tool and as you can see from my post above, Mayo Clinic in Minnesota also has it available for NET patients. Teresa
