  • Figure 1
    Non-contrast CT

    A well-defined ovoid-shaped nodule in the right adrenal gland with attenuation values ranging from 10 to 25 HU.

     
    Area of Interest: Adrenals; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MR;T2 weighted images and DWI
     

    Hyperintensity on T2-weighted images.

     
    Area of Interest: Adrenals; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Restriction on DWI.

     
    Area of Interest: Adrenals; Imaging Technique: MR-Diffusion/Perfusion; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    MR; In-Phase/ Out-of-phase

    No loss of signal intensity on out-of-phase images (compared with in-phase).

     
    Area of Interest: Adrenals; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    MR; Dynamic sequences

    Early intense enhancement in the arterial and following phases, saving millimetric hypointense central foci.
