Analysis of 18FDG-PET/CT in Patients with Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasm Abstract #1304

Introduction: Gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasm (Gi-NEN) comprised a wide and heterogeneous group of neoplasms. Diagnosis could often be challenging due to their rarity. 18FDG-PET/CT had a high accuracy for poorly differentiated NENs.
Aim(s): This study aimed to assess the value of 18FDG-PET/CT in Gi-NEN patients and illustrate the correlation between glucose metabolism and differentiation degree of tumor.
Materials and methods: 37 patients (22 males, 15 females, age: 34-77 years) with definite histological diagnosis of Gi-NEN who underwent 18FDG-PET/CT were involved in this retrospective study. All the patients had primary lesions or metastases.

Introduction: In the absence of preoperative somatostatin receptor (sst) scans, knowledge of immunohistochemical sst2 tumor expression may help in predicting the success of somatostatin analogue-based follow-up studies and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
