The study is designed to study the safety and effectiveness of 123I-MIBG as a diagnostic imaging agent in evaluating patients with known or suspected neuroendocrine tumors.
Criteria for eligibility
Healthy Volunteers: No
Maximum Age: N/A
Minimum Age: N/A
Gender: Both
Criteria: Inclusion Criteria:

- Subjects must have a clinical indication for 123I-MIBG imaging to evaluate for the presence, extent, or status of neuroendocrine tumors;

- subjects must be able and willing to comply with study procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Subjects with history of renal insufficiency (serum creatinine level > 3.0 mg/dL [265 µmol/L]) and inability to be withdrawn from medications known to interfere with 123I-MIBG uptake;

- Subjects unable to tolerate lying supine;

- Subjects pregnant or breastfeeding, unless the information to be gained outweighs the possible hazardous effects of 123I-MIBG administration. Where the assessment of the risk/benefit ration suggests the use of 123I-MIBG in nursing mothers, the breastfeeding should be discontinued for at least 48 hours post-injection.
