Abstract

The pulmonary carcinoid tumor is a strain of neuroendocrine neoplasm that originates from the Kulchitsky cells in the bronchial epithelium. They constitute less than 5% of all bronchopulmonary neoplasms. The objective of this study was to assess the plain radiology and CT features in a large series of patients with these tumors (34 cases). CT is the radiological method of choice in assessing pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors since it provides information on: a) the endoluminal and extraluminal component, b) the presence of associated calcification and c) tumor stage.
