​Blood tests looking at the blood counts, kidney function and liver function are needed before proceeding with PRRT. A Gallium-68 dotapeptide PET/CT scan is also done beforehand to determine if the tumour expresses somatostatin receptors and PRRT is a suitable treatment.

PRRT is administered intravenously. A short hospital stay in the radiation isolation room is required to monitor patients during and after the infusion of the radiopharmaceutical. Scans will be performed the day after to see the distribution of the radiopharmaceutical.
