Abstract: Multiple myeloma cells express somatostatin receptors, and somatostatin receptor scintigraphy with 111In-pentetreotide has been used for imaging multiple myeloma with variable success. We here present 68Ga-DOTANOC somatostatin receptor PET-CT findings in a 57-year-old man with multiple myeloma. PET-CT showed 2 expansile lytic lesions with increased 68Ga-DOTANOC. This case highlights the potential use of 68Ga-DOTANOC PET-CT as an alternative imaging modality in multiple myeloma.
