Yes, it will shiow u: A ct scan of the abdomen would show the adrenal glands and any tumors in them, very well.
Dr. Corinne Deurdulian

Yes.: You would usually be able to see an adrenal tumor on a ct done for stones. Most adrenal tumors are benign and called "adenomas." red and white blood cells in the urine may be related to a bladder or kidney infection.
Dr. Grant Linnell

Probably: Most ct scans done for a suspicion of kidney stones include the adrenal glands.
