Tumor Perfusion Changes During Everolimus (E) Treatment: Preliminary Results from Perfusion-CT (P-CT) Study Abstract #999

Introduction: Criteria other than RECIST are not validated for evaluation of response during treatment in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). Preliminary evidence favors antiangiogenic properties of E.
Aim(s): To evaluate in a prospective study P-CT changes in pNET liver metastasis (LM) during E.
Materials and methods: We evaluated eight LM from three patients with G1-2 pNETs. P-CT was performed at baseline (T0), after two (T1) and four (T2) months of E on a 64-row multidetector CT scan. A single ROI was drawn within each LM on the main axial slice. Perfusion (PF), Time to Peak (TTP), Peak Enhancement Intensity (PEI) and Blood Volume (BV) were calculated.
