NETs are a heterogeneous and complex group of neoplasms with a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations.
such as multidetector CT, is the most widely used technique for the initial evaluation and for exclusion of metastatic disease,
while functional imaging techniques (e.g.,
somatostatin receptor scintigraphy) are useful both for detecting tumors and selecting patients for receptor-targeted therapy.
Surgery is the potentially curative treatment for NETs and their metastases.
