Resumen

O'BRIEN S, Andrés et al. SUPRARENAL MASSES: EVALUATION THROUGH COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY AND MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.1, pp. 31-38. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082009000100005.

Despite being small, suprarenal glands constitute a frequent milieu for diseases, since some type of gland anomaly can be present in 9% of the population. Because of the increasing massive use of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, damage detection at this level has been incremented. The usefulness of these techniques lies not only in their ability in timely and accurate detection oflesions butalso in the characterization ofthem, distinguishing benign from malignant masses. Nevertheless, sometimes it is not possible to determine their nature and therefore complementan/imaging techniques such as possitron emission tomography or even a biopsymust be performed to reach a conclusive diagnosis. At the end of our revisión we propose an action algorithm for assessing suprarenal damages.
