Gallium-68 (Ga-68) DOTA-peptide positron emission tomography/computer tomography (PET/CT) has higher sensitivity and improved spatial resolution for the detection of somatostatin receptor expressing tumors than conventional somatostatin receptor scintigraphy. We present the findings of Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT in a rare case of primary neuroblastoma of the neck in a 12-year-old female child and its role in the evaluation of the treatment response.
