To review concepts about neuroendocrine tumors including their location, histopathology and diagnosis approach. To show clinical and radiological features of neuroendocrine tumors and correlate them with histology.
An extended distribution of neuroendocrine cells explains an extremely diverse tumoral localization of this tumoral lineage. There are neuroendocrines cells in adrenal medulla, anterior pituitary, gastroenteric tube, pancreas, aortic and carotid bodies, parathyroid and neural tissue, thyroid, torax and some tumors with variable differentiation like prostate and breast. Some of these tumors are associated with syndromes such as von-Hippel-Lindau, Neurofibromatosis or MEN syndromes. Some of them are hormonally active, classified as either syndromic (functioning) or nonsyndromic (nonfunctioning), on the basis of clinical and laboratory findings.
Imaging findings OR Procedure details
We reviewed retrospectively the radiological findings with CT and MRI of neuroendocrine tumors of our data base. The findings were correlated with pathology results in each of the cases. We specially go in depth with the ones localized in pancreas, digestive tube and adrenal medulla, since they are the most frequently found in our centre, but we also go through the radiological findings of the ones in unusual localizations INTRODUCTION Neuroendocrine tumours are a vast group of neoplasms that arise from neuroendocrine cells located into...
This poster presents the vast spectrum of radiological features of neuroendocrine tumors and encloses them in a frame of multiple endocrine neoplasia and facomatosis, checking over each of their possible anatomical setting and their radiological findings.
