Figure 1: Images of a 42-year-old male patient with presenting with hypertension. Anterior (a) and posterior (b) planar MIBG images show focal area of tracer uptake in left suprarenal region (arrow). CT (c) images show a left suprarenal mass which show MIBG uptake in SPECT (d) and SPECT-CT (e) images (arrow). A diagnosis of pheochromocytoma was made which was confirmed on histopathology. In this patient SPECT and SPECT-CT provided no added advantage over planar images
