Both phe­och­rom­o­cy­tomas and neu­ro­blas­tomas can now be iden­ti­fied and ­located ­with a ­high ­level of accu­racy. Scin­tig­raphy ­with ­MIBG has ­become an indis­pens­able diag­nostic ­method for ­defining the ­extent and loca­tion of ­many if not ­most phe­och­rom­o­cy­tomas. To ­define the ­stage, to doc­u­ment the ­course and to eval­uate the ­response to ther­a­pies in ­patients ­with neu­ro­blas­toma, ­imaging ­with ­MIBG is now essen­tial.
