Abstract

Investigation of the success of diagnostic interventions used in insulinoma patients in detecting insulinoma lesions. Five patients who were operated on with the diagnosis of insulinoma and whose pathology results were compatible with insulinoma were included in the study. We documented the results of endoscopic ultrasonography, CT, MRI, 68Ga-DOTATATE positron emission tomography (PET) used for diagnosis in patients and compared the success rates of these tests in diagnosing insulinoma. MRI and CT detected the pancreatic lesion in two of our five patients and gave a positive result. Endoscopic ultrasonography gave positive results in three of our patients. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT 5 detected the lesion in all of our patients and gave a positive result. We would like to point out that the sensitivity of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT is high in diagnosing insulinoma, a   neuroendocrine tumor.
