Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET): Relationship Between Radiologic Features, Functionality and Ki-67 Classification. Abstract #1136

Introduction: Since small bowel NETs are usually small tumors, detection and characterization of metastatic affection plays an important role.
Aim(s): To analyze the correlation between small bowel NET radiological features with functionality and Ki-67.
Materials and methods: 75 consecutive pathologically proven small bowel NET were retrospectively studied with MRI/CT imaging. 2 experienced radiologists in consensus analyzed radiological findings (metastatic pattern, tumor load, mesenteric vascular encasement and desmoplastic mass) and compared these with grading and functionality.
