The Trend of Using CT to Diagnose the Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Results of a Nation-Wide Retrospective Epidemiology Study in China Abstract #2214

Introduction: Representative data on the gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP-NENs) in Asian patients is rare, especially in China.
Aim(s): This study was aimed to reveal the trend of using CT to diagnose GEP-NENs in China from 2001-2010.
Materials and methods: This was a hospital-based, nation-wide, and multi-center 10-year (2001-2010) retrospective study which collected GEP-NEN patients’ information in tertiary referral hospitals. All 2010 inpatient GEP-NEN cases with confirmed pathology in the selected hospitals were included. The imaging diagnostic results were collected. The number and sensitivity of CT in diagnosing gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms were compared these ten years.

Introduction: 68Ga-DOTATATE PET CT offers higher resolution than other scintigraphic techniques in terms of localization of the primary tumor and staging of GEP NETs. Different reports in the literature suggest increased sensitivity but clear consensus about indication in neuroendocrine tumors is unclear.

Introduction: Gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasm (Gi-NEN) comprised a wide and heterogeneous group of neoplasms. Diagnosis could often be challenging due to their rarity. 18FDG-PET/CT had a high accuracy for poorly differentiated NENs.
