The evaluation and management of adrenal disease is a complex endeavor that relies on an expert knowledge of human physiology and anatomy. Careful and proper patient assessment mandates a balanced approach which marries the disciplines of endocrinology, surgery, and radiology. Any of these three specialties may be on the front line in performing the initial workup when an adrenal neoplasm is discovered. With an ever-increasing volume of cross-sectional imaging, be it CT, MRI, or PET, large numbers of adrenal incidentalomas are being discovered. A close collaboration amongst specialties should strive to streamline the initial evaluation and minimize unnecessary testing and treatment.
