Background

  • Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) arise from the diffuse neuroendocrine system eg skin, lung, the hepatobiliary system,..etc.

 

  • The most common primary sites are the lung, rectum and small bowel.

 

  • They may cause symptoms (depending on hormonal secretions) such as diarrhea or flushing.

 

  • Could be diagnosed using a variety of clinical and imaging studies, unfortunately already after metastasized.

 

  • Assessment often requires use of multiple imaging modalities including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound; arising the need for hybrid imaging.

 

  • Somatostatin receptor-based imaging would be the diagnostic cornerstone.
