This article provides an overview of the current state of the imaging modalities neuroendocrine cancer diagnosis for primary tumor visualization, staging and follow-up. Detection of NETs and patient monitoring relies mainly on anatomical imaging such as computed tomography CTmagnetic resonance imaging MRIand ultrasonography US under certain conditions. Molecular imaging techniques in combination with CT or MRI hybrid imaging greatly benefit patient management, including better localization of occult tumors and neuroendocrine cancer diagnosis staging.
Diagnosis of patients with NETs is a complex process and, it is unlikely that any single diagnostic modality to be effective.
Neuroendocrine cancer diagnosis, NET diagnosis is a process utilizing a variety of methods including blood, urine and tumor tissue samples in combination with anatomical or hybrid imaging for localization, delineation and staging of the disease.
Diagnostic approach to patients with NETs should focus on including hybrid imaging methods, which might play an important role in the future.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Imaging studies of 22 patients 12 men, mean age 60 years with histopathologically confirmed diagnosis, evaluated in the authors's institution during the last five years were retrospectively reviewed by two radiologists, with findings being consensually described focusing on changes observed at computed tomography. Only one typical carcinoid presented the characteristic appearance of central endobronchial nodule with distal pulmonary atelectasis, while the others were pulmonary nodules or masses. The atypical carcinoids corresponded to peripheral heterogeneous masses. One out of the three LCNCs was a peripheral homogeneous mass, while the others were ill-defined and heterogeneous.
