Care of NET Patients at the Skåne University Hospital-Lund University, Sweden: A Model for the Multidisciplinary Approach to the Diagnosis and Treatment of NET Abstract #677

Introduction: The varied and nonspecific symptoms of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) often delay diagnosis until the disease has progressed. Input from various medical specialties can improve access to and delivery of care.
Aim(s): To develop a multidisciplinary team at the Skåne University Hospital-Lund University, Sweden.
Materials and methods: A multidisciplinary team was formed with representatives from radiology, nuclear medicine, pathology, surgery, gastroenterology, endocrinology and oncology, and participates in weekly multidisciplinary video conferences where patient cases are presented and discussed, and treatment recommendations made.

#54 The clinical challenge of patients with a thoracic or neck neuroendocrine tumor: a retrospective analysis from a single Irish institution
Introduction: Thoracic and neck neuroendocrine tumors (T-N-NETs) represent a rare and intriguing condition and the management of patients with a NET localized at the thorax or neck can be extremely problematic. An expert and multidisciplinary approach is generally required for the optimal management of NET patients. A systematic multidisciplinary approach to NET patients has been recently established at our institution.
