(131I) IODOMETHYL NORCHOLESTEROL INJECTION, CIS bio international.
1. Diagnostic evaluation of the functional state of adrenal cortical tissue In general prior to scintigraphy, the morphological aspects of the adrenal glands (location, size) are evaluated by computer tomography supported by echography.
The diagnosis of adrenal dysfunction (hypercortisonism, hyperaldosteronism or hyperandrogenism) is established on the basis of endocrine biochemistry.
Scintigraphy is used as the follow-up procedure in which the location of hyperfunctioning tissue (diffuse hyperplasia or local adenoma) may be established.
2. Differentiation between metastatic disease to the adrenals (“cold” area) and nonmalignant adrenal enlargement in cancer patients.
3. Detection of remnants of functioning tissue in hypercortisonism after adrenalectomy or of ectopic endocrine tissue.
4. Detection and follow-up of euadrenal tumours.
