1,099 Possible Causes for CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Frontal Lobe Neoplasm, Increased Basal Metabolic Rate

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Computer tomography (CT) scan showed a solid right renal lesion, multiple liver metastases, florid chest, lymphadenopathy in left supraclavicular region and a right adrenal[oatext.com] In addition, the patient had 2 hypermetabolic uterine leiomyomas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This case suggests that Castleman's disease should be considered as a rare differential diagnosis in patients with a hypervascular and hypermetabolic renal lesion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Fig 2 [ 18 F]Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET)–computed tomography (CT) scan.[ascopubs.org] However, intense hypermetabolic activity in muscles of the abdominal wall was noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] positron emission tomography and CT performed in September 2012 confirmed resolution of metastatic lymphadenopathy, but IVC tumor thrombus and the adrenal invasion were still hypermetabolic[hrjournal.net]

  • Astrocytoma

    […] relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV) Nuclear medicine PET has FDG uptake similar to the normal white matter FDG,18-F-choline and 11C-choline PET useful for biopsy (of most hypermetabolic[radiopaedia.org] […] tumor from edema, to differentiate tumor recurrence from radiation necrosis, and to localize structures Metabolic activity of a lesion can be used to determine tumor grade; hypermetabolic[emedicine.com]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    A fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography revealed a hypermetabolic focus in the left lower lobe of the lung and in the left lobe of the thyroid.[jmedicalcasereports.com] Positron emission tomography (PET) with fluorode-oxyglucose (FDG) uses the higher glucose consumption of hypermetabolic tumors to assist in differentiating between benign[alpfmedical.info]

  • 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] […] fat metabolism for energy (breaking down of fats for fuel) increases basal metabolic rate (burns more calories) increases thermogenesis (elevates body temperature) how you[registerednursern.com] CT scan showed previously undiagnosed large right adrenal mass (5.9cm). The diagnosis of pheochromocytoma was confirmed after adrenalectomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Missing: Frontal Lobe Neoplasm
  • Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma

    Otherwise, PET CT showed no evidence of an abnormal hypermetabolic lesion suggesting malignancy. Figure 3. Table 1.[ekjm.org]

  • Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma

    PET/CT showed a hypermetabolic lesion on the liver segment IV, as well as diffuse, nonspecific perihilar, and suprahilar fluoro-D-glucose uptake.[acgcasereports.gi.org] Computed tomography showed a 6-cm hypermetabolic lesion on the liver segment IV, confirmed on biopsy to be a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma consistent with intrahepatic[acgcasereports.gi.org]

  • Esophageal Carcinoma

    PET/CT is limited in its ability to differentiate hypermetabolic metastatic disease from acute/chronic inflammatory conditions, and this must be considered during interpretation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gallbladder Carcinoma

    In addition to these methods, 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission (FDG-PET) is a technique that utilizes the hypermetabolic condition of malignant masses.[intechopen.com]
