Curium Octreoscan

Kit for the preparation of Indium In-111 Pentetreotide

Octreoscan can rapidly detect and localise neuroendocrine tumors - primary and metastatic - often missed by conventional imaging. Whole body scanning can more definitively confirm the absence, presence or extent of disease. Octreoscan's valuable clinical information can help you; stage the patient, determine diagnostic work-up, avoid multiple imaging studies or invasive procedures, select the optimal treatment plan early in the disease process, assess surgical candidates, and evaluate response to therapy. 

Indications

Octreoscan is intended for the localisation of gastro-entero-pancreatic (GEP) neuroendochrine tumors.
