Proposal of New Imaging Criteria for Evaluating the Response of Liver Metastases to Systemic Treatments in Digestive Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) as an Alternative to RECIST 1.1 Abstract #2993

Introduction: RECIST 1.1 criteria have been challenged for the evaluation of treatment response in NET.
Aim(s): To explore alternative computed tomography (CT) response evaluation criteria in metastatic NET.
Materials and methods: We included patients with small-intestine (n=50) or pancreatic (n=54) well-differentiated NET with liver metastases (LM), who received systemic therapy as first two treatment lines in 14 expert centers. Baseline (+/- 1 month) and first reevaluation (within 6 months) contrast-enhanced CT scans were locally reviewed to measure LM diameter (5 LM) and density (arterial and portal phases, 2 LM). Multivariate Cox regression analyses explored which response criteria best correlated with progression-free survival (PFS), considering different thresholds of size or density decrease (10%, 20% or 30%) and number of measured LM (2, 3 or 5).

Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) usually leads to stable rather than decreased lesion size in neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), therefore RECIST criteria are not used to assess early response to treatment.

#2987 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT as Tool for Diagnosis and Decision-Making Process of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Primary tumors in some patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET) cannot be found by conventional imaging as CT, MRI and scintigraphy. 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT (68Ga-PET) appears to have superior sensitivity, specifity, and better resolution than 99mTC-octreotide SPECT/TC (SSTR scintigraphy) and can improve decision-making process, however its cost is higher, and its availability is limited.
