Answer

For staging of GEP-NETs, the ESM0 guidelines, updated in 2012, utilize the tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) classification created by the ENETS and the 2010 WHO grading system. [9] For staging of bronchopulmonary and thymus NETs, the ESMO prefers the AJCC system. [6] For adrenal carcinoma staging, the 2009 European Network for the Study of Adrenal Tumors (ENSAT) TNM system is recommended over the AJCC system. [10]
