Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||7 Years - 80 Years|
- - suspected or confirmed untreated NET patients previously performed 18F-FDG PET/CT signed written consent.
- - pregnancy breastfeeding known allergy against TATE any medical condition that in the opinion of the investigator, may significantly interfere with study compliance.
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
Neuroendocrine tumor(NET)can be derived from endocrine glands, endocrine tissues and endocrine cells from any parts of body. Due to its occult onset and heterogeneity, it is hard to be detected by conventional imaging like CT and it is often at late stage when diagnosed. New imaging modality such as 18F-FDG PET/CT have been well-accepted as a practical way to evaluate the aggressive of tumor. 18F-FDG PET/CT has been used to improve the efficacy in assessing the extent and severity of NET, but the diagnostic accuracy of 18F-FDG PET/CT decreased in low proliferation tumor cells and inflammation. Recent studies showed somatostatin receptor (SSTR) was expressed in NET cells and SSTR-targeting molecular imaging-68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT could be a promising technique to evaluate the extent of NET with higher accuracy. Especially in some well differentiated tumor, 18F-FDG PET/CT can be negative, while 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT can be positive. However, the results can be varied in these two imaging modalities and characterized this disease at multiple levels such as clinical presentation, biologic characteristics, treatment response, and clinical outcome.This prospective study is going to investigate whether 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT may be superior to 18F-FDG PET/CT for diagnosis, risk stratification, and prognostic evaluation of NET.
Experimental: 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT
Inject 68Ga-DOTATATE and then perform PET/CT scan
Drug: - 68Ga-DOTATATE
Intravenous injection of one dosage of 74-148 MBq (2-4 mCi) 68Ga-DOTATATE. Tracer doses of 68Ga-DOTATATE will be used to image lesions of NET PET/CT scan.
