Introduction: Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) are slowly growing tumors with an indolent course. NETs often present with liver metastasis, and most of these tumors are inoperable at the time of presentation. Transarterial (chemo)embolization [TA(C)E] is widely available to manage liver metastasis of NET.
