Adrenal incidentaloma: to biopsy or not? by Mr. Hans Langenhuijsen (May 2020)

Adrenal incidentalomas are found in up to 10% of CT scans that are made for non-adrenal indications. The goal of this webinar is to illuminate the basic knowledge about adrenal diseases for urologists and the appropriate diagnostic work-up. What should be the steps upon finding of an adrenal incidentaloma? The importance of a multidisciplinary approach in evaluating the endocrine activity and the radiological characteristics are shown. The indications for surgery are assessed and for follow-up when surgery is not indicated. The specific role of biopsy for inconclusive adrenal tumours on imaging is discussed.
