Contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasound using time –intensity curve analysis predicts pathological grade of pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm

ConclusionCH-EUS and TIC analysis showed high diagnostic accuracy for grade diagnosis of PNEN. Quantitative perfusion analysis is useful to predict PNEN grade diagnosis preoperatively.

The final diagnosis was confirmed by histology after surgical excision, or cytology after fine needle aspiration (FNA). Among the benign nodules, which were confirmed usin...

Authors: Chhoda A, Jain D, Surabhi VR, Singhal S Abstract The histologic analysis of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) is a common method to detect the mitotic activity and to subsequently determine the risk of GISTs for malignancy. The potential false negative error due to inadequate yield of specimens and actual determination of malignancy risk requires analysis of the whole tumor. We aimed to assess the role of contrast enhanced endoscopic ultrasound (CE-EUS) in the management of GISTs. Two authors individually did review of English literatures to identify nine peer-reviewed original articles using keyword...
