| We aimed in this case series to show Ga-68 DOTATATE uptake in relation with disease activity in sarcoidosis cases. 8 patients with previous diagnosis of sarcoidosis were included to the study. Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT was performed to evaluate of disease activity. Disease activity was described clinically by chest disease specialist by evaluation of lung function tests, serum ACE measurements and thorax CT. Correlation between Ga-68 DOTATATE uptake and disease activity was analyzed. Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/CT as a combination of SSR scintigraphy and anatomical imaging might be beneficial in the evaluation of active sarcoidosis.
