OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to determine the proportion of pheochromocytomas that mimic adrenal adenoma using established CT washout and attenuation criteria. MATERIALS AND METHODS The CT characteristics of pheochromocytomas confirmed by histologic analysis (n = 46) and (131)I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (n = 1) were compared with those of 98 adrenal adenomas (negative plasma and urinary metanephrines or catecholamines, and one or more of the following characteristics: unenhanced… CONTINUE READING
