Splenic Incidentalomas

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Compared with other intraabdominal organs, there is a paucity of scientific investigation involving the spleen; in particular, little has been published in the radiology literature regarding the detection and characterization of splenic disease conditions. Splenic lesions are common in a busy radiology practice. Technical advancements in computed tomography (CT) allow unprecedented temporal and spatial resolution; unexpected splenic lesions are commonly detected on CT examinations of the abdomen and chest and often pose a diagnostic challenge to both the radiologist and clinician. This article discusses incidental splenic lesions detected on CT and explores potential management strategies.
