CT, computed tomography; MRI, magnetic resonance imaging; SSRS, somatostatin receptor scintigraphy; EUS, endoscopic ultrasound; Angio+Ca Stim, angiography with calcium stimulation.
*Metastatic insulinoma is rare; no data available.
All of the above sensitivities for detecting tumour are further enhanced by intraoperative ultrasound.
