Abstract

Adrenal cysts are rarely diagnosed preoperatively, unless the cyst wall is calcified. The technique of total body opacification when combined with tomography is useful in evaluating avascular suprarenal masses. The cyst appears homogeneously radiolucent and a paper thin cyst wall is identifiable. Two cases of adrenal cysts where the diagnosis was made preoperatively are reported.
