خلاصه مقاله:
Objective(s): 68Ga-DOTATATE positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) has shown promising results in imaging of neural crest tumors (NCT). Herein, we compared the performance of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT and 131I-MIBG single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT in the initial diagnosis, staging and follow-up of patients with NCTs. Methods: Twenty-five patients (males:females=8:17; age range=2–71 years) with clinically proven or suspicious neuroblastoma, pheochromocytoma (PCC) or paraganglioma (PGL) were enrolled in this prospective study and underwent both 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT and 131I-MIBG SPECT/CT. A composite reference standard derived from histopathological information, together with anatomical and functional imaging findings, was used to validate the results. Imaging findings were assessed on a per-patient and on a per-lesion basis. Sensitivity and accuracy were assessed using McNemar’s test. Results: Referring to radiological imaging and histopathological findings as reference standard, 68Ga-DOTATATE and 131I-MIBG scans showed a sensitivity and accuracy of (100%, 96%) and (86.7%, 88%), respectively, on a per-patient basis. In PCC/PGL patients, on a per-patient basis, the sensitivity of 68Ga-DOTATATE was 100% and that of 131I-MIBG was 77.8%. In neuroblastoma patients, on a per-patient basis, the sensitivities of both 68Ga-DOTATATE and 131I-MIBG were 100%. Overall, in this patient cohort, 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT identified 52 lesions and 131I-MIBG SPECT/CT identified only 30 lesions. On a per-lesion analysis, 68Ga-DOTATATE was found to be superior to 131I-MIBG in detecting lesions in all anatomical locations, particularly osseous lesions. According to the McNemar test results, differences were not statistically significant. Conclusion: This relatively small patient cohort suggests 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT be superior to 131I-MIBG SPECT/CT in providing particularly valuable information for both primary staging and follow-up in patients with NCT.
