Diagnosis and Management of Insulinomas. The Use of Current Practices in Pakistan Abstract #2761

Introduction: Insulinomas are rare functional and benign neuroendocrine tumors of Pancreas.
Aim(s): We aim to find the current best practices for the diagnosis and management of Insulinoma.
Materials and methods: A retrospective study and 104 patients diagnosed with Insulinoma were included in the study. The diagnosis was confirmed by identifying common symptoms such as hypoglycemia, dizziness, behavioural changes, tachycardia and diaphoresis. The 48-hour test, performed by measuring blood glucose levels of insulin, C peptide, and proinsulin collected every 4–6 hours in fasting patients, accurately confirmed the diagnosis of insulinoma in the majority of the patients. A multiphase CT was used to identify the location of lesion and well as metastasis. In 15 patients, arterial calcium stimulation test was used to identify the lesion region in pancreas.

#2717 64Cu-DOTATATE PET/CT Predicts Progression-Free Survival in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: The degree of overexpression of somatostatin receptors in patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) may reflect tumor differentiation and thus be associated with prognosis. Non-invasive quantification of receptor density is possible by somatostatin receptor imaging (SRI) using positron emission tomography (PET).
