 Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) present numerous complex clinical problems. Due to their relatively rare occurrence, research and patient care guidelines since the 1990s have been lacking. As a result, the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society was founded in 2004 and the society members, currently numbering nearly 1,200, bring a variety of expertise from such fields as oncology, pathology, radiology, nuclear medicine, endocrinology, surgery and gastroenterology to ENETS.
