  • Adrenal corticomedullary mixed tumours are very rare. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The aim of this review is to describe the role of nuclear imaging modalities using different radiotracers such as labeled nor-cholesterol, metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) and deoxy-glucose (FDG) in the diagnostic evaluation of patients with adrenal tumours to perform lesion characterization in comparison with MR imaging.

  • As initial diagnostic approach, clinical and laboratory assessment of cortical and medullary adrenal function allows the identification of hypersecreting adrenal lesions and, hence, the characterization of such tumours [ 2 ]. (annexpublishers.co)
  • Furthermore, molecular engineering has led to the synthesis of peptides of variable forms and sizes for tumour imaging such as radiolabeled somatostatin analogs that have been proposed in the diagnostic evaluation of malignant adrenal tumours reflecting the presence of somatostatin receptors, such as gallium-68 DOTA or techentium-99m labelled peptides [ 17 , 18 ] however, limited clinical applications of such radiocompounds in patients with adrenal abnormalities are reported.

  • Here we report the first case of a corticomedullary mixed tumour resembling a "small adrenal gland" with distinct arrange. (biomedcentral.com)
  • However, a tumour mass may not cause adrenal hyperfunction since it may be non-hypersecreting or secretes non-active products [ 1-3 ]. (annexpublishers.co)
  • Nuclear adrenal imaging techniques performed with specifically radiolabeled agents which target elements of adrenal function may provide specific metabolic information for tumour characterization, thus, complementing to morphological imaging modalities [ 7 , 8 ]. (annexpublishers.co)

  • tissue
  • Malignancy is diagnosed by the development of metastases as evidenced by recurrences in sites normally devoid of chromaffin tissue. (humpath.com)
  • Treatment
  • The maximum tolerated dose of 3-session (ie, treatment) stereotactic radiosurgery to treat brain metastases greater than 4.2 cm3 in size will be determined. (stanford.edu)
