Association between Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Biomarkers and Tumor Burden Based on Total 68Ga-DOTATATE-Avid Tumor Volume (TV) Measurements Abstract #1857

Introduction: No study has yet assessed the utility of biochemical biomarkers for evaluating NET burden using 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT.
Aim(s): To determine which markers are associated with total NET burden.
Materials and methods: A retrospective analysis of a prospective database of patients with NETs (n=232). Fasting plasma chromogranin A (CgA), neuron-specific enolase (NSE), gastrin, glucagon, vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and pancreatic polypeptide (PP), and 24-hour urinary 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5HIAA) levels were measured.
