Abstract

Eighty-one adrenal masses in 68 patients were examined with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Masses included nonfunctioning adenomas (17), metastases (25), adrenocortical carcinomas (10), and pheochromocytomas (23). T1-weighted pulse sequences depicted the anatomy with a resolution comparable to that of computed tomography (CT). T2-weighted pulse sequences provided some histologic specificity separating nonfunctioning adenomas with low signal-intensity from metatases with intermediate signal-intensity and pheochromocytomas with high signal-intensity. Pheochromocytomas could always be distinguished from other adrenal masses. In 20% of the cases, metatases with low signal-intensity could not be distinguished from nonfunctioning adenomas.
