OBJECTIVE We sought to determine if higher resolution 3 Tesla (T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with or without ovine corticotropin releasing hormone (o-CRH) stimulation would increase the sensitivity for detection of pituitary microadenomas in ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome (CS). DESIGN AND PATIENTS We prospectively identified 23 patients over a 2-year period with clinical and biochemical evidence of ACTH-dependent CS with no lesion (n = 11) or equivocal lesion (n = 10) on 1.5T MRI… CONTINUE READING
