#2028 Education and Preparation for Nuclear Medicine Procedures in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients
Introduction: In 2007, a coalition of health care organizations formed around the a unified goal of improving imaging safety and quality for adults (Image Wisely) and children (Image Gently). In 2008, the Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNMMI) joined this coalition, embracing its role in providing outreach to the patient community. The Society has created an annual patient program to reach patients and caregivers, and is continually seeking input from the patient community to improve the program and other online educational resources.

#834 Nuclear Imaging in Intermediate Grade Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Early diagnosis and grading is essential to the treatment decision-making in neuroendocrine tumors. Conventionally, proliferation rate (Ki-67) level is used for the grading of NET. Ga-68 SMS-R PET/CT is the imaging method of choice for the detection of unknown primary neuroendocrine tumors. It is very sensitive in well-differentiated tumors (Ki-67 < 2%). Poorly and undifferentiated tumors having Ki-67 greater than 20% are primarily responsible for false negativity of Ga-68 SMS-R PET/CT. In those patients, FDG-PET is performed to localize the site of the primary tumor.

#317 Paraganglioma: Gallium-68 DOTOTATE PET CT Scanning, a Useful Addition to MIBG Scanning in Metastatic Disease
Introduction: Nuclear imaging forms an important part of the assessment of chromaffin cell tumors. MIBG scintigraphy has been available for some time, while 68Ga-DOTATATE PET CT is increasingly utilized.

#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.

#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.

#987 Evaluation of the Added Value of Diffusion-Weighted Imaging to Conventional MRI in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors and Comparison with 68Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) are often difficult to detect because of small size and have variable prognosis related to grading and staging.
