#40 Clinical and prognostic implications of the genetic diagnosis of hereditary NET syndromes in asymptomatic patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare neoplasms, heterogeneous, and with variable biological behavior. NETs can be sporadic or they can arise in complex endocrine hereditary syndromes such as Multiple Endocrine Neoplasias (MEN), Familial Paragangliomatosis (FPGL), Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), von Hippel-Lindau Disease (VHL), Tuberous Sclerosis (TSC) and Carney Complex (CC). By performing genetic screening, patients with hereditary NETs can be identified before the development of tumors.

#76 Role of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography in the differential diagnosis of the pancreatic and hepatic lesions
Introduction: Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) is a new promising tool for the characterization of pancreatic lesions. This technique allows for highlighting the micro-vascularization of a lesion, especially with the use of second generation contrast media, characterized by harmonic responses at low acoustic pressures. Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PET)s were reported to have a peculiar behavior at CEUS, consisting of a higher enhancement compared to normal pancreas in the arterial phase and a rapid washout.

#2029 Prognostic Factors of Pulmonary Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids (PC) are rare malignant neoplasms that account for approximately 1% of all lung cancers. PCs are classified by histological criteria as either typical (TC) or atypical (AC). Histological subtype is the most studied prognostic factor.
