Visualization of Gallbladder with In-111 Octreotide Scan.

Özülker F, Özülker T, Tatoğlu MT, Küçüköz Uzun A - Mol Imaging Radionucl Ther (2015)

Bottom Line: Since the unusual uptake in the gallbladder was still detected at these images, additional images were obtained 72 hours after radionuclide injection.The activity in the gallbladder disappeared at these images revealing the physiologic nature of this unusual accumulation.Abstract available from the publisher.

ABSTRACT
A 54-year-old woman underwent octreotide scintigraphy for evaluation of neuroendocrine tumor recurrence. The images demonstrated unusual uptake in gallbladder area in addition to physiologic uptake at other tissues. Whole-body planar and SPECT imaging were repeated after fatty meal ingestion at 28 hours in order to figure out whether this activity was physiologic or not. Since the unusual uptake in the gallbladder was still detected at these images, additional images were obtained 72 hours after radionuclide injection. The activity in the gallbladder disappeared at these images revealing the physiologic nature of this unusual accumulation.

No MeSH data available.

f2: In-111 octreotide SPECT image at 24 hours showing activity in the liver on axial slice (a), 72 hours SPECT image showing clearance of the uptake (b)

Mentions: Octreotide scintigraphy was performed and whole-body planar and SPECT were acquired at 4 and 24 hours after administration of 5 mCi (185 MBq) In-111 octreotide. The images demonstrated physiologic uptake at the liver, spleen, kidneys and bladder along with an unusual uptake at the location of gallbladder. Whole-body planar and SPECT imaging were repeated after fatty meal ingestion at 28 hours in order to differentiate pathological activity and physiologic uptake in the gallbladder. The unusual uptake in the gallbladder was still detected at these images; therefore additional images were obtained 72 hours after radionuclide injection. The activity in the gallbladder disappeared at these images indicating the physiologic nature of this unusual accumulation (Figure 1 and Figure 2).
