Prospective Evaluation of Incidental Pituitary Imaging Findings in the Sella Turcica

รวบรวมผู้ที่ตรวจพบความผิดปกติของsellar และต่อมใต้สมอง จากการทำเอ๊กซเรย์โดยบังเอิญ  ในช่วง1 ปีของการศึกษาวิจัยนี้

The overwhelming majority of evaluable images (n = 3782) -> report a very low frequency of incidental sellar findings  45 (1.2%), most commonly among inpatients (P < .001). Partially empty sella and empty sella were the most frequent findings, and were twice as likely to be detected on MRI vs CT. All other incidentally discovered lesions, including one microadenoma and one macroadenoma, were detected only by MRI.
