53 Possible Causes for CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    An abdominal computerized tomographic (CT) scan during her work-up showed a right adrenal mass consistent with myelolipoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The CT scan on the right shows a large right adrenal mass outlined in yellow under the normal sized liver (in red ).[endocrineweb.com]

  • Acromegaly

    Context: Acromegaly is characterized by growth hormone (GH) and insulinlike growth factor-1 (IGF-1) hypersecretion, and GH and IGF-1 play important roles in regulating body composition and glucose homeostasis. Objective: The purpose of our study was to investigate body composition including ectopic lipids, measures[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Answers QUESTION 1 The CT scan (figure 2 ) shows a large mass (arrow) arising from the region of the right adrenal gland.[pmj.bmj.com]

  • Carcinoma of the Lung

    Chest CT scan showed a lobulated mass of 2.7 cm 2.7 cm in size at the upper left lung.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abdominal computerized tomography (CT) scan revealed intestinal obstruction and a mass of 6.0 cm 6.0 cm in size located at the left adrenal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adrenal Gland Metastasis

    […] gland mass; CT scan and CT - PET did not show other pathological findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (a) US scan shows a septated cystic mass of the right adrenal gland (arrows). (b) Contrast material-enhanced CT scan shows a lobulated cystic mass with calcified septa.[pubs.rsna.org] After a normal abdominal ultrasound and bone cintilogram, she had a positron emission tomography scan performed, which showed a right adrenal mass ( figure 1 ).[casereports.bmj.com]

  • Renal Carcinoma

    Figure: CT scan shows large left renal mass with calcification (m) invading the left renal vein (arrow). 19 20.[slideshare.net] Figure : Computed tomography demonstratesa right renal carcinoma (m) with a largecontralateral adrenal metastasis (a).[slideshare.net] Metastatic Work-Up Chest X-ray or Chest CT CT/MRI scan of abdomen or pelvis Bone scan with plan films (for elevated alkaline phosphatase or bone pain). 18 19.[slideshare.net]

  • Angiomyolipoma

    The follow-up 18F-FDG PET/CT scan showed a nearly complete resolution of the previously detected adrenal mass, with very low tracer uptake and a decrease in its functional[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] scan of the upper and middle abdomen with fluorine-18-fluorodeoxy glucose (18F-FDG), for further evaluation of a mass in the left adrenal gland region.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Positron emission tomography showed a suspicious, enlarged, hypermetabolic mass with an average standardized uptake value (SUV) of 4.5 and a maximum SUV of 5.9.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Achlorhydria

    A PET-CT scan revealed a 7.5   6.1 cm hyper-metabolic adrenal mass, whose SUV (max) was 5.41.[bmccancer.biomedcentral.com] Several hypodense areas showing no glucose metabolism were found at the central part of the mass, suggesting necrosis (Figure 1 ).[bmccancer.biomedcentral.com]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    If imaging with MRI or CT scans of the adrenal glands shows a mass in the gland (or outside it), surgery may be done.[web.archive.org] CT scan showed previously undiagnosed large right adrenal mass (5.9cm). The diagnosis of pheochromocytoma was confirmed after adrenalectomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tests include: An adrenal biopsy that shows pheochromocytoma A MIBG scintiscan that shows tumor An MRI of abdomen that shows adrenal mass An abdominal CT scan that shows mass[uclahealth.org]
