#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.

#2149 Symptomatic Hypothalamic-Pituitary Metastases Disclosing Malignant Paraganglioma
Introduction: A paraganglioma is a rare tumor composed of chromaffin cells. Malignant paraganglioma is a very rare presentation diagnosed by local recurrence after total resection of the primary mass or findings of distant metastasis. We report a case of a 34-year-old women with a Malignant paraganglioma presneting with visual loss and hypopituitarism resulting from metastasis to the pituitary area. The diagnosis of malignant paraganglioma was based on loco-regional and distant metastasis

#392 A 67-Year Old Woman with a Carcinoid Tumor of the Coccyx with Liver Metastases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are tumors of the interface between the endocrine and nervous system. They are characterized by the presence of secretory granules, as well as the ability to produce biogenic amines and polypeptide hormones. The clinical behavior of NETs is extremely variable; they may be functioning or non-functioning, ranging from very slow-growing tumors, which are the majority, to highly aggressive and very malignant tumors. Many case reports of rare sites of primary NETs outside the gastrointestinal tract have been described, as tumors with neuroendocrine characteristics can occur in virtually any organ or tissue. Nevertheless, this is the first case of a metastatic coccygeal carcinoid tumor ever described.

#825 Brain Metastases in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients: Frequency and Outcome
Introduction: Brain metastases are rarely reported in patients with neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) of non-lung origin and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the gastroenteropancreatic or bronchopulmonary system. Symptomatic brain metastases are associated with dismal prognosis, so early detection and treatment could be advisable.

#1168 Simultaneous Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma and Adenocarcinoma of the Stomach: A Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) of the stomach is rare. Gastric NEC occasionally has another component, such as adenocarcinoma, in the same tumor. However, the concurrent occurrence of LCNEC and adenocarcinoma at different sites in the stomach is extremely rare.

#1395 A Single Centres Experience of Cardiac Metastasis from Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET)
Introduction: Cardiac metastasis from NET are rare with little information to guide management strategies. Previous case reports discuss varying strategies including observation, somatostatin analogues (SSA), chemotherapy, radiotherapy and resection.
