Adrenal tumor

Can we have a CT scan specifically for adrenal glands only like adrenal CT scan or do we requested to carry out whole abdomen CT scan. Does whole abdomen CT scan reveal adrenal glands in detail in order to diagnose for adrenal tumor.

Hello... CT is gold standard test for adrenal tumor.. They will do whole abdomen scan concentrating more on adrenal gland. CT scan detect 70 to 80 % of adrenal tumor , surgery is done for confirmed case with preoperative medicine .. Urinary vma and catecholamines are tested for pheochromocytoma.
