Introduction: A substantial proportion of pheochromocytomas (PCC) are detected during the work-up of an adrenal incidentaloma. Recently it has been suggested that in case of an adrenal incidentaloma with an unenhanced attenuation value <10 Hounsfield Units (HU) on CT imaging biochemical testing to rule out PCC is unnecessary. We aimed to determine the sensitivity of the 10 HU cut-off value to detect pheochromocytoma.Methods: Retrospective multicenter...
