FDG PET scan vs. 68Ga DOTATATE PET scan for neuroendocrine cancer
I would be curious to see if there are any laymen articles regarding the use of FDG PET scan vs. the Dotatate PET scan. In some articles if the tumor is well differentiated it appears that the Dotatate is the best use of imaging? But if undifferentiated maybe the FDG? The facility I go to will only order the FDG PET scan for me, although the same medical entity offers this at another facility about 2 hours away from where I live. Am in a quandary if I should push for the Dotatate imaging. My last two PET scans showed no emerging cancer, as did my most recent mammogram.
