Summary of "SPECT/CT MIBG Imaging Is Crucial in the Follow-up of the Patients With High-Risk Neuroblastoma."

Planar whole-body imaging with I-radiolabeled metaiodobenzylguanidine (I-MIBG) is routinely used in the follow-up evaluation of neuroblastoma. In recent years, SPECT with integrated low-dose CT (SPECT/CT) has become more accessible. We investigated how much SPECT/CT can have additional diagnostic value over planar imaging in detection of residual and recurrent neuroblastoma.
