19 Possible Causes for Iodocholesterol Adrenal Scan

  • Conn Syndrome

    […] venous sampling for aldosterone or a dexamethasone suppressed iodocholesterol adrenal scan may identify the lesion Angiography Adrenal venous sampling to assay aldosterone[radiopaedia.org] […] of water ( none or minimal contrast enhancement rarely calcify detects 70% of aldosteronomas, although small lesions may be missed if CT findings are negative, selective adrenal[radiopaedia.org]

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    Abstract Adrenal cortical mitochondria display an extensive capacity to adapt morphologically to the functional state of the adrenal cortical cell. In the present study, we have used transmission electron microscopy to analyze cortical tissues from 3 normal human adrenal glands (zona fasciculata and zona[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperaldosteronism

    […] venous sampling for aldosterone or a dexamethasone suppressed iodocholesterol adrenal scan may identify the lesion Angiography Adrenal venous sampling to assay aldosterone[radiopaedia.org] scanning and adrenal venous sampling, will almost always help distinguish unilateral adenoma from bilateral hyperplasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of water ( none or minimal contrast enhancement rarely calcify detects 70% of aldosteronomas, although small lesions may be missed if CT findings are negative, selective adrenal[radiopaedia.org]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    Scintigraphy of the adrenal gland with iodocholesterol scan is occasionally necessary.[en.wikipedia.org] When any of these tests is positive, CT scanning of the adrenal gland and MRI of the pituitary gland are performed to detect the presence of any adrenal or pituitary adenomas[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Secondary Aldosteronism

    […] venous sampling for aldosterone or a dexamethasone suppressed iodocholesterol adrenal scan may identify the lesion Angiography Adrenal venous sampling to assay aldosterone[radiopaedia.org] […] of water ( none or minimal contrast enhancement rarely calcify detects 70% of aldosteronomas, although small lesions may be missed if CT findings are negative, selective adrenal[radiopaedia.org]

  • Congenital Isolated ACTH Deficiency

    Imaging tests include CT or MRI of the adrenals, nuclear imaging (iodocholesterol scan), and the "gold standard", adrenal venous sampling (AVS) .[ocw.tufts.edu] Scan Sella Adrenal Glands Pituitary Cushing's Normal to mildly elevated 50% suppression Mild bilateral enlargement or normal Ectopic ACTH Normal to markedly elevated No suppression[glowm.com] Summary of the diagnostic evaluation for the various etiologies of Cushing's syndrome Serum ACTH Level CRH Test High-Dose Dexamethasone Test CT/MRI Petrosal Sinus Sampling Iodocholesterol[glowm.com]

  • Bronchial Adenoma

    Persistent Cushing's syndrome was present following apparent total adrenalectomy, but radioactive scanning with 131I-19-iodocholesterol showed the presence of residual adrenal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adrenal Gland Neoplasm

    Iodocholesterol scintigraphy showed a bilateral adrenal uptake of the tracer predominant on the right gland ( Fig. 2 ).[academic.oup.com] In the two cases, computerized tomographic scan showed that the adrenal tumor contained two components with low and high attenuation values, respectively.[academic.oup.com] Conclusion: These observations show that collision/composite tumors of the adrenal gland formed by carcinoma metastasis in benign adenomas are a pitfall of iodocholesterol[academic.oup.com]

  • Adrenal Cushing Syndrome

    They reported two patients with unilateral adrenal uptake of 131 I-19-iodocholesterol (NP-59) indicating the presence of a hyperfunctioning adrenal adenoma, without clinical[hormones.gr] These findings were considered similar to thyroid hot nodules revealed by thyroid scan in the absence of thyrotoxicosis. 7 Further in vivo 8-10 and in vitro studies 11,12[hormones.gr]

  • Primary Pigmented Nodular Adrenocortical Disease

    The imaging of a solitary cortical nodule on CT scan with otherwise normal adrenal glands made the diagnosis of bilateral adrenocortical dysfunction remote and no iodocholesterol[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] Bilateral uptake of iodocholesterol is demonstrated in cortical adrenal scintigraphy in most subjects with PPNAD [ 6 ].[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]
