Introduction: Neuroendocrine Tumor (pNET) comprised a wide and heterogeneous group of neoplasms. 18FDG-PET/CT was the most widely used functional imaging for cancer in general and had a high accuracy for poorly differentiated NENs.
Aim(s): This study aimed to analyze the special performance of 18FDG-PET/CT in pNET patients and to assess the correlation between glucose metabolism and differentiation degree of tumor.
Materials and methods: 40 pNET patients (20 males, 20 females, age: 19-77 years) with histologically proven were enrolled in the study. All the patients had primary lesions or metastases.
