Figure 1: A 38 year-old male, a known case of well-differentiated bronchial carcinoid (operated primary) presented with multiple uncontrolled episodes of sweating, flushing, and diarrhea. The patient was on daily short acting octreotide injections. On 68Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT (a), there was multiple and extensive metsastatic liver and skeletal marrow involvement. FDG-PET/CT (b) demonstrated uptake in some of the hepatic metastatic foci and very low-grade uptake in the bone marrow. Figure 1c (depicting transaxial slices of both studies side by side) further substantiates this. Following three cycles of PRRT the patient demonstrated complete resolution of all symptoms with complete cessation of octreotide injections. The FDG-PET/CT comparison (d-f) showed a partial response of the FDG concentrating lesions
