Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Magnetic Resonance Imaging Features and Correlation with Their Histological Grade Abstract #1330

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.
Aim(s): To describe magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features including diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) of PanNENs according to their histological grade.
Materials and methods: Preoperative MR examinations of 50 PanNEN patients were retrospectively reviewed. Qualitative and quantitative MR features were evaluated by two radiologists by consensus. All MR features were compared between histological grades using chi-square/Fisher’s exact test and Student’s T/ANOVA test. P values <0.05 were considered statistically significant.

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.

#1198 Role of Combined 68Ga-DOTATOC and 18F-FDG PET-CT in the Diagnostic Workup of Well Differentiated Pancreas Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNETs): A Surgical Series
Introduction: PanNETs have a broad spectrum of aggressiveness. Somatostatin-receptor based functional imaging, [68Ga]DOTATOC-PET/CT (GP), is recommended in the diagnostic workup of PanNETs; preliminary evidences show that [18F]FDG-PET/CT (FP) can provide prognostic information.

#1283 Heterotopic Pancreas Mimicking a Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumor: A Case Report
Introduction: Heterotopic pancreas, defined as an atypical presence of pancreatic tissue with no anatomic or vascular continuity with the pancreas, is relatively rare. In most cases it is diagnosed during autopsy or incidentally, since it becomes symptomatic only in few cases, causing bleeding, pain or obstruction.
