The combined use of SPECT and CT strongly supports the molecular imaging of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with somatostatin receptor radiopharmaceuticals or with meta-iodobenzylguanidine. SPECT/CT fusion images provide potential attenuation correction, higher specificity, and accurate localization for the staging, evaluation of treatment response, and follow-up of NETs.
