Ultrasonography Characteristics of Hepatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasm Abstract #1727

Introduction: The incidence of hepatic neuroendocrine neoplasm (HNEN) is significantly increased in recent years.Lack of recognization usually lead to misdiagnosis.
Aim(s): To analyze the features of HNEN with ultrasound.
Materials and methods: 50 patients with 54 lesions pathological or eikonic proven HNEN underwent baseline ultrasound(BUS) and contrast-enhanced ultrasound(CEUS).Ultrasonography features of HNEN,distinctions between primary lesions (PHNEN) and metastatic lesions (MHNEN),discrepancies among different pathological grades and primary focus were investigated.

#87 Alterations of E-cadherin, beta-catenin and caveolin-1 expression in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP NETs) comprise a heterogeneous group of neoplasm with different histological patterns and biological behavior. Only limited information is available on immunohistochemical prognostic factors of disease. Alterations in the cell-cell adhesion system are closely associated with cell invasion and metastasis in many malignancies, including those of endocrine origin. Abnormal expression of E-cadherin and beta-catenin has been reported to play an important role in these processes. Caveolin-1 has recently been identified as a tumor metastasis modifier factor, which might increase the cell metastasis potential through the interaction with E-cadherin. However, the role of caveolin-1 in GEP NETs cell invasion remains unknown.

#541 Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) is a Helpful Tool to Predict the Effectiveness of Somatostatin Analogues in Patients with Liver Metastases From Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) allows characterization of the micro-vascularization of tumor lesions. Liver metastases (LM) from neuroendocrine tumors (NET) show a typical pattern on CEUS, consistent with a rapid, intense and homogeneous enhancement (hypervascular pattern) in the arterial phase.

#1171 Clinical Characteristics and Treatment Outcome of Six Advanced G3 Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: According to 2010 WHO grading system, all neuroendocrine neoplasms were divided into G1/G2/G3 based on Ki-67 and mitotic count. However, differentiation was also very important for the biological behavior and treatment strategy.
