Figure 2: Images of a 30-year-old male patient presented with hypertension. Anterior (a) and posterior (b) planar MIBG images were essentially normal. CT (c) images show a large left suprarenal mass with areas of necrosis (arrow). SPECT (d) and SPECT-CT (e) images show MIBG uptake in the peripheral parts of the tumor with no uptake in central necrotic part (arrow). Also noted is normal physiological tracer uptake in right suprarenal gland (arrow). A diagnosis of pheochromocytoma was made which was confirmed on histopathology. In this patient SPECT and SPECT-CT provided significant advantage over planar images
