abstract

  • The purpose of this article is to familiarize radiologists and clinicians with a subset of common and uncommon incidental findings on abdominal and pelvic computed tomography examinations, including hepatic, splenic, renal, adrenal, pancreatic, aortic/iliac arterial, gynecological, and a few other miscellaneous findings, with an emphasis on "incidentalomas" discovered in the emergency setting. In addition, we will review the complex problem of diagnosing such entities, and provide current management recommendations. Representative case examples, which we have encountered in our clinical practices, will be demonstrated.
