Direct examination of the adrenals was possible in 20 patients who underwent laparotomy, and their surgical and/or histopathological findings were compared to that of adrenal scans. There was complete correlation in all these patients except for 2 who had microscopic disease in their adrenals. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
