Small and Large Incidental Non-Hyperfunctiong Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Spectrum of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Features Abstract #1457

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.
Aim(s): To analyze and compare magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features of incidental NF-PanNENs according to their size.
Materials and methods: MR examinations of 23 patients with incidental, histologically-proven PanNENs were retrospectively evaluated. Qualitative and quantitative MR features were analyzed and compared between small (<2 cm) and large (>2 cm) NF-PanNENs.

#2798 Risk of Pre-Operative Understaging of Duodenal Neuroendocrine Tumors at Conventional Imaging: When Surgery Becomes the First Choice
Introduction: Duodenal neuroendocrine neoplasms (dNENs) are heterogeneous tumors that can exhibit aggressive behavior, with loco-regional nodes and distant metastases. Pre-treatment staging is the basis for planning either surgical or endoscopic treatment.
