Radio-guided surgery and postoperative PET/CT scan of a surgical specimen of an intraosseous meningioma in a patient with neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas.

A 63-year-old man with a previously resected neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas underwent Ga DOTATOC PET/CT, which showed intense Ga DOTATOC uptake in the left calvarium. Radio-guided surgery and subsequent histology revealed an intraosseous meningioma. Complete removal was proven by a PET/CT scan of the surgical specimen.
