Diagnostic Accuracy of 68Gallium Positron Emission Tomography (68Ga PET), Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) and Computed Tomography in the Assessment of Lymphnode Metastases by Nonfunctioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #3022

Introduction: The presence of nodal metastasis is one of the most important predictive factors for recurrence after radical surgery for nonfunctioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NF-PanNEN). Nevertheless, it is not clear which is the best diagnostic examination to identify preoperatively lymphnodal metastasis.
Aim(s): To determine the accuracy of preoperative staging in detecting nodal metastases in patients affected by sporadic NF-PanNEN
Materials and methods: Patients undergoing radical surgery for sporadic NF-PanNEN were prospectively enrolled in the DETECTYON trial (NCT03918759). Sensitivity and specificity of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) scan, 68Gallium-PET and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) in predicting presence of lymphnodal metastases were analyzed.

#2805 Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumor Metastases: Comparison of Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography and 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT
Introduction: Most gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors (GI-NETs) involve the small intestine (38%) and about 50% of patients present with regional or distant metastases at time of diagnosis [2]. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT provides improved sensitivity and specificity compared to traditional nuclear medicine techniques [4]. However, there is relatively less data comparing performance of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT with contrast-enhanced CT (CECT).

#2798 Risk of Pre-Operative Understaging of Duodenal Neuroendocrine Tumors at Conventional Imaging: When Surgery Becomes the First Choice
Introduction: Duodenal neuroendocrine neoplasms (dNENs) are heterogeneous tumors that can exhibit aggressive behavior, with loco-regional nodes and distant metastases. Pre-treatment staging is the basis for planning either surgical or endoscopic treatment.
