#303 Pancreatic Metastases from Bronchopulmonary Atypical Carcinoid: An Uncommon Tumor Spreading to a Rare Location
Introduction: We report an uncommon case of pancreatic metastases from a bronchial atypical carcinoid.

#563 Role of Ga-68 Somatostatin Receptor PET/CT in the Assessment of Response to Radiofrequency Ablation in Hepatic Metastases of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET) present frequently with hepatic metastases. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an important local ablative treatment for hepatic metastases.

#825 Brain Metastases in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients: Frequency and Outcome
Introduction: Brain metastases are rarely reported in patients with neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) of non-lung origin and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the gastroenteropancreatic or bronchopulmonary system. Symptomatic brain metastases are associated with dismal prognosis, so early detection and treatment could be advisable.

#159 Detection of cardiac metastases in patients with neuroendocrine tumors: comparison of Ga-68 DOTA-SMS-R PET/CT, cardiac MRI, CT scan and 2D echocardiography
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumor metastases to the heart have been sparsely reported in literature. There is as of yet no detailed study on the best imaging method for the detection of this rare site of metastases.

#162 Different sites of rare metastases in neuroendocrine tumor patients detected by Ga-68 somatostatin receptor PET/CT
Introduction: The most common sites of metastases in neuroendocrine tumors are liver, lymph nodes, and bone.

#182 Ki-67 (MIB-1) Proliferative Activity and Beta-Catenin Immunoexpression in Liver Metastases of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Assessment of liver metastases biology features associated with cell proliferation and adhesion has a strong prognostic impact in patients with gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine carcinomas.

#189 Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and Tissue Inhibitors of Matrix Metalloproteinases (TMIPs) in GEP NET Patients – A Potential Prognostic Biomarkers for Metastases
Introduction: MMPs have the ability to degrade the extracellular matrix and are responsible for tumor invasion and metastases. Higher TIMP-1 levels are associated with low survival rate in some types of cancer.

#1604 Resection of Liver Metastases in Patients with High-Grade Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: A Nordic Multicenter Study
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine carcinomas (GEP-NEC) are generally characterized by synchronous metastases, high aggressiveness and a dismal prognosis. Currently, resection of liver metastases in patients with metastatic GEP-NEC is not recommended. However, the existing data are scarce.

#437 mTOR Expression in Primary Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors and their Metastases
Introduction: The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), an important regulator of cell proliferation and invasion, is activated in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Information on detailed expression of mTOR in locally advanced or metastatic PNET is poorly described.

#816 Resection at Diagnosis of the Primary Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor in Patients with Unresectable Liver Metastases. A Possible New Approach for a Multimodal Treatment
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) present in more than 50% of cases with liver metastases as the only systemic localization. Liver metastases are unresectable in 80% of cases at diagnosis. In the context of metastatic disease, the benefit of primary tumor removal in terms of survival is controversial
