Brief Summary:
To evaluate 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT for staging of patients with carcinoid, neuroendocrine tumors, medullary thyroid cancer and other cancers expressing somatostatin receptors.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Carcinoid Cancer Neuroendocrine Tumors Medullary Thyroid Cancer Cancers Expressing Somatostatin Receptors Drug: 68Ga DOTATATE

Detailed Description:
This is an expanded access study with a total of 300 participants with NET and suspected SSTR positive tumors. Eligible participants will undergo baseline assessments at enrollment. Study participants will receive 68Ga-DOTATATE and will undergo a PET/CT imaging study. All patients referred by Oncologists will be screened by a UCLA Nuclear Medicine physician and then accepted for scanning if clinically appropriate.
