Abstract

Functional imaging by (18)F-DOPA- and (11)C-HTP-PET can accurately visualize diffuse endocrine pancreatic activity in post-gastric bypass hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. Both (11)C-HTP- and (18)F-DOPA-PET imaging appear to have a similar diagnostic performance in the presented case, and uptake of both tracers potentially relates to disease activity after surgical intervention.
