  • Figure 1
    Adrenocortical carcinoma

    A large nodular lesion, predominantly hypoechoic and with a hyperechoic centre in the left adrenal area.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Adrenocortical carcinoma;

    Coronal T2-weighted image showing a heterogeneous mass in the left adrenal region, displacing the left kidney.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Adrenocortical carcinoma;

    Axial T2-weighted image showing the same mass.

  • Figure 3
    Adrenocortical carcinoma
     

    Axial T1-weighted image showing an isointense mass in the left adrenal gland with a hyperintense area within.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Adrenocortical carcinoma;

    Axial T1-weighted image out-of-phase showing a signal intensity loss only at the border of the hyperintense area in the mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Adrenocortical carcinoma;

    Axial fat-saturated T1-weighted image showing no signal intensity loss of the hyperintense area in the mass either

    Axial T1-weighted image before intravenous gadolinium administration. On this fat-saturated image the hyperintense area seen on Figure 3a shows a signal intensity loss.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Adrenocortical carcinoma;

    Dynamic T1-weighted image after administration of gadolinium intravenously, arterial phase.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Adrenocortical carcinoma;

    Dynamic T1-weighted image after administration of gadolinium intravenously, venous phase.
