MRI of the Adrenal Glands

A doctor or physician may order an MRI scan of the adrenal glands to take pictures of the gland itself, which is a hormone-producing organ located on the top of each kidney. An MRI is useful because it shows healthcare providers what tissue is normal, and what tissue is not. Many organs in your body can be seen during a quality MRI of the adrenal glands including:

The left and right adrenal glands can be seen that are located on top of the kidneys, which are also shown.

The relationship between the adrenal gland and the spleen can also be shown, as well as the liver.

The spinal column can be seen as well as a series of discs lying on top of one another.

A quality MRI scan can show radiologists what may be causing your signs or symptoms and it’s important that you find the best machines and radiologists possible to receive the best imaging.

Reasons for an Adrenal Gland MRI:

An adrenal gland MRI scan may be done to check for certain cancers or other illness. The MRI may show tissue that has cancer cells and tissue that does not have cancer cells.

An adrenal gland MRI can be used to guide doctors or surgeons during a procedure, such as a biopsy. An MRI scan may be used if surgery is needed to remove a growth or lump.

A MRI scan of the adrenal gland can show healthcare providers how well a treatment for a disease is working and the results of a quality MRI scan can help in the plan for the best treatment forward.

An Adrenal Gland MRI may help diagnose (find):

A MRI of the adrenal gland may find tumors, growths or lumps on the adrenal glands.
