#863 Assessment of Neuroendocrine Tumors' Heterogeneity with Combination of Molecular Imaging Studies
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are heterogeneous neoplasms. The choice of the appropriate molecular imaging study for assessment of disease extent usually depends on tumor grade.

#2185 Nonfunctional Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (NF PNET) Imaging and Evaluation Using 18F-FDG and 68Ga- DOTANOC-PET/CT: Initial Data of a Prospective Study
Introduction: Predicting aggressive behavior of NF PNET still remains controversial. It is known that lymph node metastases are rare but possible also on small (1-2 cm) NF-PNET. Positive 18F-FDG-PET/CT avidity is associated with poor prognosis in NETs.

#491 International Survey for the Use of Biomarkers and Molecular Imaging in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET): What we are Using in Daily Practice
Introduction: Several guidelines have given recommendations for optimal use of biomarkers and molecular imaging. However, those guidelines’ implementation may not be always possible due to local policies or lack of access to several diagnostic studies.

#472 Detection of Liver Metastases and Prognostic Value of Functional and Anatomical Imaging in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Liver metastases (LM) are frequent in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and are associated with decreased overall survival (OS). Several treatment options are available depending on degree, localization, size and number of LM. For optimal choice of treatment and correct staging, accurate imaging modalities are crucial.

#1088 Functional Imaging Tests versus Computed Tomography Scan: Detection of New Metastases and Clinical Usefulness in Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Follow-Up
Introduction: Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (DNENs) express in 80% of cases somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) detected by functional imaging tests (FITs). FITs are needed at diagnosis to define therapy but their role in follow-up (FU) is unclear

#2242 Diagnostic Utility of Ki-67 as a Mean to Predict the Uptake of Functional Imaging Modalities in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: Functional imaging with FDG-PET and somatostatin receptors scintigraphy (SRS), play a key role in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). The proliferative index, ki67, is a reliable pathological marker for grading.

#1136 Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET): Relationship Between Radiologic Features, Functionality and Ki-67 Classification.
Introduction: Since small bowel NETs are usually small tumors, detection and characterization of metastatic affection plays an important role.

#1190 Blood Gene Transcript Analysis Predicts 68Ga- SSA-PET/CT Imaging in Neuroendocrine Tumors and Defines Disease Status
Introduction: Limitations of biomarkers and imaging are a concern in the identification of NET status and therapy response.

#1300 Staging of Neuroendocrine Tumors: Value of Hybrid Imaging With 111In- Pentetreotide
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are rare and can occur anywhere in the body. Ninety-eight percent of these tumors express the type 2 of somatostatin receptors, making possible the functional imaging of NET. 111In-labelled pentetreotide specifically binds to somatostatin receptors, with particular affinity to subtypes 2 and 5.

#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.
