Question: Ct scan w/contrast showed adrenal adenoma. Now MRI says no mass exists. How reliable is ct scan? Had a ct scan of abdomen which showed a 1.4 x 2.6 cm adenoma on adrenal gland. Now MRI states no mass on adrenal gland. Concern because MRI office was not clean or professional. Could original ct scan see something that isn't really there? Can I request original radiologist of ct scan to review MRI results?

Answer: You can request it, I'm not sure if they will allow it. Ask your physician if you might benefit from a PET scan for further diagnosis. Maybe the adrenal gland mass was a cyst and it broke between the time that you had your CT and your MRI. I would definitely ask for a second opinion on both xrays. To get back to your original question, I think it is a very good idea to have both tests reviewed by the same radiologist.
