Computed Tomography (CT) was employed to evaluate the incidence of brain and adrenal gland metastases in 74 patients (not-small cell lung cancer) staged for surgery. Nine patients presented one or more asymptomatic brain metastases, 4 adenocarcinomas, 3 epidermoid, 2 adenosquamous. In 6 cases adrenal gland masses were found, only one of which was confirmed as a secondary lesion at biopsy. The authors conclude that brain CT is useful in the preoperative staging of lung cancers, independent of the histology of the primary lesion. An accurate assessment of the utility of CT of the adrenal glands requires a larger sample of patients due to the high incidence of benign adrenal gland masses.
