Computed Tomography and Adrenocortical Carcinoma focuses on key statistics of adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC). The equipment used to diagnose ACC and the specific types of studies used to diagnose ACC is discussed. Symptoms of ACC and how they affect adults and children are outlined. The research outlines potential genetic defects/other cancers that are associated with ACC. Research discusses the treatment of ACC and the therapies associated with ACC. The research describes certain characteristics of an ACC that are found on a CT scan. Multiple CT tools for diagnosing ACC are also mentioned. The research discusses the survival rate of ACC based on what stage ACC the patient is in and their survival rate. Finally, a case study is analyzed in the research project that reiterates common symptoms of the patient, how the ACC appeared radiographically on the CT scan, how the diagnosis was confirmed, and the treatment plan for the patient with ACC.
