Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) v. Endoscopic Ultrasonography (EUS) for the Detection of =10-mm Pancreatic Tumors in Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 (MEN1). A GTE Study Abstract #199

Introduction: In MEN1, the main risk factor of metastases is pancreatic tumor size. We and others recommend limiting surgery to pancreatic tumors >20 mm or growing based on their size measured with EUS.
Aim(s): To compare EUS (invasive technique) to non-invasive MRI for the detection of =10-mm pancreatic tumors in MEN1 patients.
Materials and methods: Nine centers participated in this prospective study. Ninety MEN1 patients with or without previously known pancreatic lesions underwent EUS and MRI. Radiologists and gastroenterologists were blinded to the results. MRI were reviewed centrally. Agreement between EUS and MRI was assessed with Kappa coefficients.

#91 Endoscopic ultrasound of 66 insulinomas
Introduction: Ultrasound is the virtual representation of the morphology of organs and tissues. Endoscopic ultrasound can be used in detailed scanning of pancreas and preoperative topical diagnostics of insulinomas. Insulinoma requires surgical treatment in all cases. This fact allows control of preoperative diagnostic methods.

#135 The importance of endoscopic ultrasound in detecting recurrent gastrinoma in a case of MEN 1
Introduction: Approximately 25-30% of patients have gastrinomas as part of the inherited syndrome Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 (MEN 1). Gastrinomas occur in the pancreas, duodenum or peripancreatic lymph nodes. Diagnosis is made by clinical history, gastroscopy, and measurement of serum gastrin, gastric juice pH, CT scan, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS). Localization of gastrinomas in patients with MEN 1 is challenging due to their small size, frequent duodenal location, and multiplicity.

#168 Neuroendocrine Tumors - Imaging Abdominal Complications
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors mostly arise from the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas but also from bronchopulmonary or any other organ. Abdominal complications are usually associated with the primary GI tract tumor.

#1330 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Magnetic Resonance Imaging Features and Correlation with Their Histological Grade
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) have different biological behavior and prognosis according to their histological grade. At present, few data are available regarding the value of imaging techniques in predicting the grade of PanNENs.

#1457 Small and Large Incidental Non-Hyperfunctiong Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Spectrum of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Features
Introduction: The improvement of imaging techniques significantly increased the detection of small incidental non-hyperfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NF-PanNENs). Most NF-PanNENs <2 cm are likely benign lesions and a non-operative approach could be advocated in selected cases for these lesions.
