|Hybrid imaging in neuroendocrinal tumours, an overview|
- 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.
