Management of Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors
Small bowel neuroendocrine tumors are clinically challenging to detect and are often found incidentally or with metastatic disease. Specific imaging is used to detect and localize these tumors, and biochemical tests can be used to help identify patients at risk of a carcinoid crisis. Treatment is often multimodal and is determined by tissue differentiation and Ki-67 index.
