Özet

Introduction: Adrenal incidentalomas (AIs) are masses frequently observed on radiological examination that have attracted attention due to their coincidence with metabolic disorders. Recently, the relationship between atherosclerosis and adrenal incidentalomas has been noted. Epicardial fat tissue (EFT) and carotid artery intima-media thickness (CIMT) measurements show the development of atherosclerosis (AS). The aim of this study is to evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease in AI patients using EFT and CIMT readings.
