Prognostic Role of FDG-PET in Advanced Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #1232

Introduction: The role of FDG-PET to predict clinical outcome in advanced digestive neuroendocrine neoplasms (dNENs) is still unclear
Aim(s): To determine the ability of FDG-PET to predict disease progression (DP) in patients with advanced dNENs.
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of prospectively enrolled consecutive patients with histologically confirmed advanced unresectable dNENs. PFS analysis was performed by Cox proportional hazards model.

Introduction: Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (DNENs) express in 80% of cases somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) detected by functional imaging tests (FITs). FITs are needed at diagnosis to define therapy but their role in follow-up (FU) is unclear
