#2113 How to Perform Contrast Enhanced Oncologic Staging MRI of Abdomen and Pelvis with a Hepatocyte Specific Agent in a Large Bore MR Scanner: Optimizing Extrahepatic Tumor Evaluation in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: Liver specific MR contrast agents in neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) have shown its advantages in evaluation of hepatic tumor burden. However, a standard scan protocol is insufficient in extrahepatic and especially pelvic tumor evaluation.

#816 Resection at Diagnosis of the Primary Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor in Patients with Unresectable Liver Metastases. A Possible New Approach for a Multimodal Treatment
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) present in more than 50% of cases with liver metastases as the only systemic localization. Liver metastases are unresectable in 80% of cases at diagnosis. In the context of metastatic disease, the benefit of primary tumor removal in terms of survival is controversial

#1047 Unresectable Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Liver Metastases Treated by Liver-Directed Therapies
Introduction: Hepatic metastases develop in 85% of patients with GI neuroendocrine tumors. Liver-directed therapies allows for manageable microinvasive treatments able to improve the benefit and reduce the toxicity.

#685 A Small Mixed Adenocarcinoma and Neuroendocrine Tumor of the Duodenum with Multiple Liver Metastases
Introduction: Mixed adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine cancers (MANECs) are rare specific type of tumors that are composed of two histologic components: a neuroendocrine carcinoma and an adenocarcinoma. There are only a few reports regarding MANEC of the stomach, colon and rectum in the literature.

#1705 Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA) Uptake in a Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (pNET) Bearing Patient
Introduction: Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a transmembrane protein overexpressed on both prostate epithelial malignant cells and endothelial cells of tumor-associated neovasculature of many solid cancers. PSMA has been investigated already as a target in staging and detection of prostate cancer

#133 Effectiveness of transarterial embolization of liver neuroendocrine metastases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with diffuse liver metastases have a poor prognosis and prove difficult to palliate. Somatostatin analogues and chemotherapy have been used but often are poorly tolerated and may not provide symptom relief. Transarterial Embolization (TAE) is being increasingly used to improve symptom control and reduce tumor size. We looked at the last 5-year experience of TAE in patients with hepatic metastases from neuroendocrine tumors.

#440 The First Neuroendocrine Tumor Methylome Using Methylation-Specific Immunoprecipitation Followed by Second Generation Sequencing – MeDIP-seq
Introduction: Recently, the first cancer methylomes have been created which identified differential methylation at CpG island-shores (2kb upstream of CpG islands) to be of particular importance in the tumourigenic process.

#686 Hepatic Arterial Embolization for Gastroenteropancreatic NET Liver Metastases
Introduction: Selective hepatic arterial embolization (HAE) with polyvinyl alcohol particles has been shown to be equivalent to chemoembolization for patients with hepatic gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine metastases. There remains debate about its clinical effectiveness and which patients benefit from treatment.

#25 Predictors of response to radio-embolization (TheraSphere ®) treatment of neuro-endocrine liver metastasis
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) frequently metastasize to the liver. Most patients have diffuse, and therefore incurable, disease. NET liver metastasis has been shown to respond to yttrium-90 microspheres therapy. This study aims to define factors that predict response to radio-embolization in patients with NET liver metastases.
