Despite the introduction of sophisticated cross-sectional imaging techniquescomputed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasonographythe localization of insulinomas smaller than 2 cm remains a problem. In our previous experience [1], these noninvasive methods of localization had sensitivities of 17% (computed tomography), 25% (magnetic resonance imaging), and 26% (ultrasonography). Our results may have been biased because most patients have negative results on noninvasive imaging… CONTINUE READING
