Night of Neon Terms & Conditions
Read the following event terms and conditions before you register
Neuroendocrine tumours often have somatostatin receptors (molecule or surface on a cell that somatostatin binds to). Radioactive octreotide, a drug similar to somatostatin, can bind to these receptors when injected into the bloodstream. A radiation-measuring device detects the radioactivity and composes scan pictures of this.
