Ultrasonography Detects Most pNET


Introduction: Early detection of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) is problematic. Abdominal ultrasonography (US) applies to >10% of the german population each year, but many hesitations exist: observer dependency, lack of reliability, unvisible organ due to overlying gas

Aim(s): To assess US in the detection of pNET

Materials and methods: Since June 2018 43 patients (mean age 56, 26-82) with suspected pNET were examined by US. The results were compared with MRI, CT, or DOTATOC-PET/CT, and histology
