Introduction: The 18F-FDG uptake assessed by PET/CT is correlated to prognosis in most tumors.
Aim(s): The aim of our study was to compare the 18F-FDG uptake with tumor proliferation (Ki67) and expression of molecules related to cell metabolism [hypoxia (VHL), glucose transport (GLUT-1), cellular pH (CA9)] in well differentiated NET.
Materials and methods: This retrospective study included 22 patients. 18F-FDG uptake was assessed by the SUVmax value (Standardized Uptake Values). An immunohistochemical study was performed with Ki67, VHL, GLUT-1 and CA9 antibodies.
