Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must have a clinical indication for 123I-MIBG imaging to evaluate for the presence, extent, or status of neuroendocrine tumors;
  • subjects must be able and willing to comply with study procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with history of renal insufficiency (serum creatinine level > 3.0 mg/dL [265 µmol/L]) and inability to be withdrawn from medications known to interfere with 123I-MIBG uptake;
  • Subjects unable to tolerate lying supine;
  • Subjects pregnant or breastfeeding, unless the information to be gained outweighs the possible hazardous effects of 123I-MIBG administration. Where the assessment of the risk/benefit ration suggests the use of 123I-MIBG in nursing mothers, the breastfeeding should be discontinued for at least 48 hours post-injection.
