CONTEXT Adrenal incidentalomas are common findings necessitating extensive laboratory work-up and repetitive radiological examinations. Positron emission tomography (PET) using (11)C-labeled metomidate (MTO) has previously been described as a tool for specific adrenocortical imaging. OBJECTIVE We evaluated 212 MTO-PET examinations in 173 patients to identify its role in the management of adrenal tumors. DESIGN Seventy-five histopathological examinations from 73 patients were retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
