CT Adrenal Glands

Ct Adrenal Glands

A CT scan of the adrenals is a medical imaging procedure used to evaluate the adrenal glands, which are two small glands located on top of each kidney. This imaging modality provides detailed information about the size, shape, and condition of the adrenal glands and nearby structures. A CT adrenal scan can help identify various adrenal gland disorders, including adrenal tumours (both benign and malignant), adrenal hyperplasia, and adrenal haemorrhage. It can also assess the presence of masses or abnormalities in the surrounding abdominal organs, such as the liver, kidneys, and spleen.

In clinical practice, a CT adrenal scan is a valuable tool for diagnosing and managing adrenal gland-related conditions. Endocrinologists, urologists, and radiologists use these images to determine the cause of symptoms such as hypertension, weight gain, or hormonal imbalances. It aids in the localization and characterization of adrenal masses, which can be essential for treatment planning, whether it involves surgical removal of a tumour or medical management of hormonal disorders. Additionally, a CT adrenal scan can detect adrenal hemorrhage, a condition often associated with trauma or certain medical conditions.
