Bone Metastases (BM) in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET): Imaging Characteristics and Clinical Implications. A Single-Institution Experience


Introduction: The incidence of BM in NET is underestimated and there is no consensus on clinical features, diagnostic techniques, and treatment options.

Aim(s): To assess the role of 68Ga-PET, 18FDG-PET, and CT-scan for the detection and characterization of BM.

Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of consecutive patients (pts) with BM either at the initial diagnosis or during follow-up.
