Neuroendocrine Tumours: Finding Zebras with Nuclear Medicine

"NEUROENDOCRINE TUMOURS Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) are of much clinical interest these days, due to their rising prevalence, unusual clinical manifestations, and new impactful imaging tests and therapies. Unlike most tumours which are associated with a specific organ (such as lung cancer arising from the lungs), NETs arise from specialized neuroendocrine cells disseminated throughout the body. Neuroendocrine cells are similar to nerve cells (neurons), but they also produce hormones like endocrine cells. The small bowel is the most common site of origin, with the pancreas and lungs also being common. Other sites include the adrenal glands, other parts of the gastrointestinal tract, and less frequently the thyroid, prostate, ovaries, and other organs.
