Figure 1: Tc-99m-OCT upstaged this patient with false-negative contrast-enhanced CT scan. Axial postcontrast CT scan image in (a) only found a 7 mm preduodenal lymph node, reported as benign looking (white arrow). The whole body of Tc-99m-OCT in (b) showed abnormal uptake in the small bowel (black arrow). Selected coronal images of the Tc-99m-OCT in (c) showed abnormal radiotracer uptake in the preduodenal lymph node (white arrow) and the proximal small bowel (black arrow). CT: Computed tomography; Tc-99m-OCT: Technetium-99m-octreotide
