Abstract

Ultrasonography has become an important modality for imaging adrenal glands in small animals. Normal adrenal glands and structural abnormalities, such as changes in size, shape, and echogenicity, can be identified. In the case of adrenal tumors, ultrasonography is a valuable tool for identifying neoplastic masses with local and regional involvement, as well as potential abdominal metastases. When correlated with clinical findings and results of hematologic, serum biochemical and endocrine tests, ultrasonographic findings make a substantial contribution to the diagnosis of adrenal diseases in dogs, cats, and ferrets.
