Abstract

Adrenal incidentalomas are masses that are discovered by imaging tests performed for other reasons. Today, in line with the increased use of imaging methods as computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, the prevalence of diagnosis of adrenal incidentaloma has increased. The first stage that must be assessed after diagnosing adrenal incidentaloma is the examination of the mass in terms of hormonal status and malignancy. This evaluation is important for follow-up of the patients and for treatment planning.
