The existing most common semi-quantitative systems used for neuroblastoma diagnosis include Curie and SIOPEN scores, which are based on 123I-MIBG planar scans. The purpose of our study was to find out whether a statistically significant difference exists in evaluation based on planar and SPECT/CT scans. We also compared the Curie and SIOPEN methods in terms of their use in regular practice. Patients; method: 45 patients aged 0-10 years; 213 assessments were done in total, and the Curie and SIOPEN scores were determined in each case based on planar and SPECT/CT scans. Student’s T-test and the Bland-Altman plot were used for the statistical analysis.
