BACKGROUND Patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of the small bowel often present with metastatic disease, and localization of the primary tumor still is a diagnostic challenge. Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) is an established method that improves the diagnostic evaluation of diseases of the small intestine. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of WCE in imaging neuroendocrine tumors of the small bowel in these patients. DESIGN We retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
