: Neuroendocrine neoplasms comprise an ever greater ratio of primary gastrointestinal tract tumors, thanks to the improving diagnostics. The clinical presentation can be quite diverse depending on the type of the tumor. Imaging methods - both the spectrum of radiological methods and methods of nuclear medicine - are an integral part of the diagnostics. This article presents a case report of a 65-year old female patient, whose routine abdominal US scan performed as part of a preventive check-up revealed a suspicious liver incidentaloma. The case report presents the image of the pathology in various imaging modalities, radiologic and molecular/hybrid methods used in the differential diagnostic process of the lesion, as well as findings in follow-up examinations after histological verification of the lesion and an outline of further approach and treatment.
