In this authoritative lecture, Dr. Angelos provides a brief overview of the diagnosis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). He defines PNETs, describes the different categories of PNETs, and compares functional with non-functional PNETs. He highlights the characteristics of gastrinoma, insulinoma, VIPoma, and somatostatinoma. He also summarizes National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommendations, imaging options, and biochemical studies for PNETs.
