they have had a Cat Scan (CT scan) performed with and without contrast media
(medication given intravenously to enhance the CT images) or if patients are
scheduled to have a CT scan performed and if the reason their physician ordered the
CT is because they have an adrenal mass of an unknown type.
- Patients, who have electrically, magnetically or mechanically activated implants such
as heart pacemaker, magnetic surgical clips, prostheses or implanted neurological
- Pregnant patients or patients who are lactating.
- A patient who is claustrophobic and would require sedation to complete the MRI exam.
