Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to provide a multimodality imaging review of ileal carcinoid tumor. CONCLUSION. Ileal carcinoid tumors display a variety of radiologic findings. Delay in diagnosis is common because of initial nonspecific symptoms and subtle imaging findings. Reviewing the multimodality imaging appearance of the primary tumor, metastatic disease, and associated ancillary findings can help improve patient care.
