FULL TEXT  REPRINTS


Adrenocortical scin­tig­ra­phy pro­vides infor­ma­tion con­cern­ing cor­ti­cal func­tion ­that is not readi­ly avail­able by oth­er ­means. The abil­ity to map dif­fe­ren­tial adren­al cor­ti­cal func­tion has ­great clin­i­cal util­ity and demon­strable ­cost-effec­tive­ness in the eval­u­a­tion of adren­o­cor­ti­cal dis­ease and in dis­tin­guish­ing ­benign ­from malig­nant ­lesions in ­patients ­with inci­den­tal­ly dis­cov­ered adren­al mass­es.
