Neuroendocrine Tumor Diagnosis: PET/MR Imaging. PET clinics Duan, H., Iagaru, A. 2023


Imaging plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). The initial workup of the primary tumor, including its characterization, local and distant staging, defines subsequent treatment decisions. Functional imaging using hybrid systems, such as PET combined with computed tomography, has become the gold standard. As NETs majorly arise from the gastrointestinal system and metastasize primarily to the liver, simultaneous PET and MR imaging with its high soft tissue contrast might be a valuable clinical one-stop-shop whole-body imaging tool. This review presents the current status and challenges of PET/MR imaging for diagnosis of NETs.
