Downgrading Due to Ki-67 Index Assessment with Image Analysis Abstract #696

Introduction: The latest WHO classification for neuroendocrine tumors (NET) defines their grade according to Ki-67 and mitotic index. These parameters have both shown to be prognostic.
Aim(s): We investigate the accuracy of the Ki-67 index for grading NET.
Materials and methods: Ki-67 index of 82 tumor specimens of NET was assessed by two pathologists as in routine practice with the eyeballing method and twice by image analysis using ImageJ. For image analysis, photomicrographs of Ki-67 stained slides taken at a magnification of 20 and 40 were used.

#2683 Clinicopathological Features and Prognostic Analysis of 227 Cases with Well-Differentiated Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (g-NENs) are a group of rare tumors with a strong heterogeneity, subdivided as well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NETs, type 1-3 g-NETs) and poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma(NECs). WHO classification(2019) for digestive system tumours has carried out a new classification and grading criteria for NENs of the gastrointestinal tract recently, there is very few relevant clinical data based on this new classification, especially for gastric NETs(g-NETs).

Introduction: Current classification divides NENs into neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC). NENs at different anatomic sites require site-specific applications for the classification.
