What ultrasound looks at the adrenal glands?

Retroperitoneal US. Exam should include the adrenals, but they are hard to see with ultrasound unless abnormally large. They are not usually commented on in an us report unless clearly abnormal.
Not the best test. Ct or MRI are the best tests to image the adrenal glands. U/s can visualize them if they're really big.
