Abstract: Incidentally detected adrenal lesions (“adrenal incidentalomas”) have become a growing clinical problem due to increased and refined radiology methods. Autopsy studies show frequencies as high as 7-8% in the elderly. A large part of such lesions give no health problems but some can be related to hormone overproduction or malignant disease. Dedicated radiological imaging can often reveal whether the lesion is benign or malignant, based on e.g. its fat content and wash-out of contrast medium. Our ... more
