The problems inherent in visualizing the adrenal glands are illustrated by the variety of imaging modalities that have been employed. Although urography has been the basic screening examination, one can make a sound argument for CT as the procedure of choice in the evaluation of the patient with suspected adrenal pathology.

It is the purpose of this presentation to review the usefulness of available modalities in the context of the clinical evaluation of adrenal disease.
