RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the ability of (18)F-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) PET/CT to distinguish adrenal adenomas from nonadenomas in patients with suspected malignancy. METHODS Fifty-nine adrenal masses were evaluated with coregistered (18)F-FDG PET (PET/CT). Two reviewers independently graded uptake of (18)F-FDG by visual inspection of the adrenal mass in comparison to liver and background. CT attenuation value of the adrenal mass and the standardized uptake value (SUV… CONTINUE READING
