Specializes in Diagnostic Radiology

Of cushing syndrome are pituitary tumors (cushing's disease), pancreatic islet cell tumors, exogenous steroid use (most common) and other tumors that are derived from nerve/endocrine cells. Sometimes a very small, active adrenal adenoma is not seen on ct, MRI may be better.
