1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit Hours
1.00 MOC Points


Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Adrenal Nodules.

At the end of this presentation, learners should feel comfortable with the work-up
of adrenal nodules, both those found incidentally and non-functional, as well
as those that abnormally secrete hormone, such as adenomas causing Cushing’s
syndrome, pheochromocytoma, and primary hyperaldosteronism, and adrenocortical
carcinoma. The learners should have a general understanding of the treatment
for each diagnosis.
