CT diagnosis of adrenal gland tumors

CT diagnosis of adrenal gland tumors

Computertomographie 3(2): 60-66

The article reports on 36 examinations conducted to identify a possible adrenal tumour, or leading to the discovery of a disease of the adrenal glands. Pathological findings were obtained in 17 cases, including 6 adenomas, 6 metastases, 1 leukaemic infiltrate, 1 primary carcinoma, 1 phaeochromocytoma, 1 cyst and 1 bilateral adrenal hyperplasia. In 16 patients, CT produced the correct diagnosis. No false-negative diagnosis were seen. The tumours are described in respect of their morphological characteristics and their density performance in the CT. This is followed by a comparative discussion involving the results obtained by other working groups. The ranking of CT in respect of diagnosis of adrenal tumours is discussed in comparison to the competing imaging methods. Since CT ranks very high as far as its diagnostic value is concerned, it should be given preference in the identification of adrenal tumours.
