Confirmation of Ectopic Pancreatic Tissue: A Novel Use for 18F-Fluciclovine PET. Clinical nuclear medicine Keller, E. J., de Castro, C. M., Ghanouni, P., Shah, J. 2022


ABSTRACT: This case features a 21-year-old woman with a history of ulcerative colitis who was incidentally found to have a para-jejunal mass when she presented with an ulcerative colitis flare. The mass was further characterized on MR enterography as most likely representing ectopic pancreatic tissue. Given the normal intense pancreatic uptake of 18F-fluciclovine, PET/CT was subsequently used to confirm that the mass represented ectopic pancreatic tissue.
