MRI is an invaluable imaging tool in the evaluation of adrenal lesions with the lack of ionizing radiation burden a major advantage. The standard imaging sequences frequently allow definitive characterization of many indeterminate adrenal lesions. In addition, emerging imaging modalities, such as PET/MR and MR spectroscopy have the potential to yield further information but require more studies for validation.
