Significance of Preoperative FDG-PET/CT Scan in Patients with Pulmonary Carcinoid Tumours Abstract #1518

Introduction: FDG uptake on PET/CT scan has been shown to be of prognostic significance in patients (pts) with metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (NET).
Aim(s): The aim of the study was to determine the prognostic significance of preoperative FDG uptake in the primary tumour in pts who underwent radical surgical resection of their pulmonary carcinoids (PC).
Materials and methods: Pts were operated by a single surgeon and were followed-up in the Christie NHS Hospital from 2007 to 2015. Pathology diagnoses were centrally confirmed. Tumours with SUVmax>3 were considered FDG-positive(+).

Introduction: Pulmonary typical and atypical carcinoids are widely considered indolent, although they can metastasize even with a very long relapse free interval. No standard follow-up strategy exists after a radical resection.

#737 Impact of Ki-67 Proliferative Index on Survival in Patients with Typical and Atypical Pulmonary Carcinoids
Introduction: Currently pulmonary carcinoids are separated into typical and atypical tumors based on mitotic count and presence of necrosis, according to the WHO classification. Whereas for GEP NETs the ENETS Guidelines have been incorporated into the WHO classification and grading is based on mitotic counts and Ki-67 index, the use of the Ki-67 index for grading pulmonary carcinoids is still under debate.
