Context: Patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) are at high risk of malignant pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). Structural imaging is typically used to screen for pNETs but is suboptimal for stratifying malignant potential.
Objective: To determine the utility of fluorodeoxyglucose (18F) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) for predicting the malignant potential of pNETs in MEN1.
Design: Retrospective observational study.
Setting: Tertiary referral hospital.
Patients: Forty-nine adult patients with MEN1 carrying a common MEN1 mutation who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT for MEN1 surveillance between 1 January 2010 and 30 September 2016.
Interventions: Structural and functional imaging (magnetic resonance imaging, CT, ultrasonography, and 18F-FDG PET/CT) and surgical histopathology.
Main Outcome Measures: pNET size, behavior, and histopathology.
