Adrenal CT Washout Calculator

An adrenal CT washout calculator is a tool that helps to estimate the degree of adrenal gland function based on the results of a computed tomography (CT) scan. The adrenal glands are two small endocrine glands located on top of the kidneys that produce hormones that play important roles in various bodily functions. The adrenal CT washout calculator uses the results of a CT scan to calculate the percentage washout of the contrast material that is used during the scan. The contrast material is injected into a vein to help highlight certain structures in the body during the scan. The washout percentage is calculated by comparing the amount of contrast material in the adrenal gland at the beginning of the scan to the amount present at the end of the scan. The adrenal CT washout calculator is typically used to assess the function of the adrenal glands in patients who may have a problem with their adrenal gland function, such as adrenal insufficiency or Cushing's syndrome. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for these conditions.
