Application of Parametric Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound for Early Treatment Response Evaluation in Metastatic Hepatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasm Abstract #1805

Introduction: Since shrinkage of lesions in patients with metastatic hepatic neuroendocrine neoplasm (MHNEN) receiving systemic therapy is rarely observed,limit of RECIST for evaluating treatment response gradually emerged.
Aim(s): To investigate the feasibility of parametric contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) for early therapeutic response evaluation.
Materials and methods: 13 MHNEN patients who received systemic therapy underwent baseline ultrasound,2D-CEUS and 3D-CEUS pre-treatment and post-treatment regularly(after 1/2,1,2 and 3 period of treatment).CEUS raw data was analyzed to render time-intensity curve and extract parameters:peak intensity(PI),area under curve(AUC) and slope.Treatment response was assessed with CECT according to RECIST.Relation between percentage of parameters changed (Δparameter%) and response,distinction between 2D and 3D-CEUS were analyzed.

#2831 Immunohistochemical Profile of Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Retrospective Analysis in a Single Algerian Institution
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Noplasms (NEN) are rare tumours, but their incidence is clearly increasing in our country due to the improvement of diagnostic means, in particular the generalization of immunohistochemical techniques. The digestive location represents more than 70% of the cases. The anatomopathological study enables to classify the NEN in different prognostic grades according to the degree of differentiation, mitotic index and Ki67.

#2847 Surgical and Survival Outcomes of Early Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy for Downstaging Locally Advanced or Oligometastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm (pNEN) patients often present with locally advanced or metastatic disease. The objective response rate of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) in pNENs is 55%. Therefore, PRRT may be a possibility for patients who are not eligible for upfront curative surgery.
