Diagnosing neuroendocrine tumors

.column-left .brightcove-video{ padding-top:0; }

There are many types of neuroendocrine tumors (NET), and each requires a different approach to diagnosis and treatment. Diagnosing neuroendocrine tumors depends on the type of tumor, its location, whether it produces excess hormones, how aggressive it is, and whether it has spread to other parts of the body.

Our cancer experts use a variety of tools designed for diagnosing neuroendocrine tumors, evaluating the disease and planning your individualized treatment. The diagnostic tests we may use to diagnose NETs include:

  • Lab tests, cytopathology
  • Biopsy, endoscopic ultrasound
  • ERCP
  • CT scan, CT angiography
  • MRI
  • Laparoscopy
  • Nuclear medicine imaging
  • Genetic testing and counseling
