UNLABELLED There are different metabolic imaging methods, various tracers, and emerging anatomic modalities to stage neuroendocrine tumor (NET). We aimed to compare NET lesion detectability among (99m)Tc-hydrazinonicotinamide (HYNIC)-octreotide (somatostatin receptor scintigraphy [SSRS]) SPECT/CT, (68)Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT, and whole-body diffusion-weighted MR(More)
Although (177)Lu-octreotate is an effective treatment for patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs), some patients will fail or develop disease progression necessitating further treatment. We examined whether the safety and efficacy of everolimus after prior treatment with (177)Lu-octreotate is different from the published safety(More)
Neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients must be adequately staged in order to improve a multidisciplinary approach and optimal management for metastatic disease. Currently available imaging studies include somatostatin receptor scintigraphy, like OctreoScan®, computed tomography (CT), scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which analyze vascular(More)
Clinical studies demonstrated that the incidence of cardiovascular disease is low in premenopausal women, rises in postmenopausal women, and is reduced to premenopausal levels in postmenopausal women who receive estrogen therapy. The interaction between gender and myocardial infarction indicates that the survival advantage of women is modified by the(More)
Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NET) have heterogenic clinical presentations. The majority of GEP-NET tumours have an indolent behaviour, but patients will eventually develop symptoms of tumour progression or hormone secretion that may require systemic medical interventions. Cytotoxic chemotherapy has been tested in GEP-NETs since the(More)
Neuroendocrine tumours are a heterogeneous group of diseases with a significant variety of diagnostic tests and treatment modalities. Guidelines were developed by North American and European groups to recommend their best management. However, local particularities and relativisms found worldwide led us to create Brazilian guidelines. Our consensus(More)
