Carcinoid Cancer Foundation Awards Grant to Stanford University

June 2014
Carcinoid Cancer FoundationThe Carcinoid Cancer Foundation has awarded a grant of more than $65,000 to Stanford University to expand access to its Gallium-68 (Ga-68) DOTA-TATE PET/CT program for carcinoid and neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients with somatostatin receptor positive tumors. PET imaging using the Ga-68 labeled compound DOTA-TATE offers higher resolution and sensitivity than Octreoscan®, at a lower cost, and with improved convenience for patients. Andrei Iagaru, MD, Associate Professor of Radiology and Co-Chief of the Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging at Stanford University Medical Center, is the Principal Investigator of the study.

The Division of Nuclear Medicine is grateful to the foundation and to the private donor for the funding. Read the full article, on The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation website, here.
