Prognostic Role of FDG-PET in Advanced Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms


Introduction: The role of FDG-PET to predict clinical outcome in advanced digestive neuroendocrine neoplasms (dNENs) is still unclear

Aim(s): To determine the ability of FDG-PET to predict disease progression (DP) in patients with advanced dNENs.

Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of prospectively enrolled consecutive patients with histologically confirmed advanced unresectable dNENs. PFS analysis was performed by Cox proportional hazards model.
