#1140 Incremental Benefit of Preoperative Endoscopic Ultrasound for the Detection of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Meta-Analysis
Introduction: Current guidelines recommend computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging as the initial imaging modalities for the work-up of suspected pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs).

#2052 Oral Carcinoid Mimicking as non Healing Ulcer. A Case Report.
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors are the aggressive tumors resulting in sheer morbidity and mortality of the patients. The true origin of oral neuroendocrine carcinomas remains unclear.

#142 The role of 18F DOPA-PET in a case of malignant pheochromcytoma
Introduction: Pheocromocytoma is a rare tumor arising from chromaffin cells of adrenal medullary or extra adrenal paraganglionic tissue. Histological criteria cannot differentiate benign from malignant pheocromocytomas. The diagnosis of a malignant pheocromocytoma requires local invasion, recurrence and documented metastatic disease. The radionuclide scanning (123I - 131I-MIBG) is a fundamental diagnostic tool used to confirm the biochemical and radiological diagnosis of pheochromocytoma. In fact, MIBG scanning may confirm that the visualised lesion in an adrenal gland is indeed a pheochromocytoma and detect extra-adrenal paraganglionic tissue. However, MIBG scans are negative in around 15% of benign pheochromocytomas and in up to 50% of malignant ones. Other radionuclide techniques (18FDG-PET, 18F-DOPA-PET, 18F-FDA-PET) have been successfully used in investigation of pheochromocytomas. 18F-DOPA-PET and 18F-FDA-PET have been reported to be highly sensitive and specific for benign pheochromocytomas, while 18FDG-PET can be useful for malignant lesions with higher metabolic activity.

#862 The Role of Chromogranin A as a Predictor of Radiological Disease Progression in Midgut and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Chromogranin A (CgA) is an established neuroendocrine biomarker. However, its role as a predictor of radiological disease progression in all neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has not been recognised yet.

#539 Patterns of Care of Neuroendocrine Cancer in Ontario: Health Services Delivery
Introduction: Delayed diagnosis and treatment of NETs may result in increased health care utilization, medical costs and patient distress. Patients may be treated by different specialists and modalities.

#1838 A Rare Case of Ectopic Cushing's Syndrome
Introduction: Cushing's syndrome has an incidence of 0.7 - 2.4 per million people per year. In 15% of cases, it’s associated with non-pituitary tumors secreting ACTH. Pheochromocytoma accounts for 5% of ectopic ACTH secretion.

#934 Neuroendocrine Tumors of The Appendix: A Study of Presentation, Investigation and Management
Introduction: Causes of appendicitis include infection, inflammatory bowel disease, faecoliths and neoplasm. Rarer causes of obstruction, such as neoplasm, may present in an identical manner to common causes, such as infection, and remain undiagnosed without histologcal analysis of appendicaecal tissue. Neuroendocrine tumors of the appendix are most commonly detected incidentally by histological analysis of appendicaecal tissue following appendicectomy.

#866 Plasma Chromogranin B as a Marker of Tumor Burden and Radiological Progression in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Chromogranin-B (CgB) is expressed in most neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), yet little is understood about its clinical utility as a biomarker.
