Mechanism Of Action The somatostatin receptor-based imaging is the preferred choice in the diagnostic and management of neuroendocrine tumors. The basis for the mechanism of dotatate gallium 68 is the binding of a ligand analog that is radiolabeled, in this case thye preferred binding site is the receptors of the subtype 2. The malignant cells are reported to overexpress the somatostatin subtype 2 receptor. Dotatate gallium 68 is a β+ emiting radionuclide with an emission yield that can be detected by the positron emission tomography and thus the seletive binding to the overexpressed somatostatin receptor will be detected.
