#12 Chromogranin A as a predictor of progression, regression or stable disease in ileo-cecal (midgut) carcinoid tumors
Introduction: A general characteristic for NETs is their expression of certain proteins, such as chromogranin A (CgA), which is released from the dense core vesicles of NE cells, occasionally together with cell specific hormones, such as gastrin and serotonin. Plasma CgA seems to be closely related to tumor burden of intestinal carcinoid tumors in humans.

#601 Chromogranin A is a Sensitive Marker of Progression or Regression
Introduction: One of the most common is gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) NET of the pancreas, which constitute about 30% of all GEP NET. CgA is an excellent marker for NET and tumor volume and plasma CgA is suggested as the most reliable marker in follow-up of GEP but only few studies have been published.

#168 Neuroendocrine Tumors - Imaging Abdominal Complications
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors mostly arise from the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas but also from bronchopulmonary or any other organ. Abdominal complications are usually associated with the primary GI tract tumor.

#365 FDOPA PET/CT has a Significant Clinical Impact on the Management of Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Studies suggest that positron emission tomography (PET) using the dopamine-synthesis tracer [18F]fluoro-dihydroxyphenylalanine (FDOPA) may improve the clinical management of patients with NET.

#201 Comparison of 18F-DOPA, 68Ga-Somatostatin Analogues and 18F-FDG PET-CT in Patients with Recurrent Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: Various PET tracers have been proposed for detection of recurrent disease in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). No data have been reported comparing 18F-DOPA and 68Ga-somatostin analogues (SA) in MTC.

#231 Chromogranin A as a Predictor of Progression, Regression or Stable Disease in Ileo-Cecal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Chromogranin A is an excellent marker for NET and tumor volume. Plasma CgA is suggested as the most reliable marker in follow-up of patients with some types of NET.

#1051 An Intrapatient Comparison of 99mTc-HYNIC-TOC with 68Ga-DOTA-TATE for Imaging Abilities of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: Imaging with 68Ga-labled somatostatin analogs provides some advantages over SRS imaging, and has therefore recently become more poprlar.

#1077 Signs of Carcinoid Heart Disease on Staging CT: Which Predictors are Helpful?
Introduction: In patients with functionally active neueroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) carcinoid heart disease presenting primarily with tricuspid valve regurgitation (TR) is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis is crucial to improve prognosis.
