Answer

For imaging studies, the joint ES/AACC/ESE guidelines recommend CT scanning as first line, rather than MRI. However, MRI is an option in certain patients, such as those with metastatic PPGL, those allergic to CT contrast media, and those for whom radiation exposure should be limited, such as pregnant women.
