Main targets


Autopsy processing

In autopsy, make a couple of cuts through the adrenal glands, such as transversal ones, and look mainly for adrenal tumors. A comprehensive approach is to remove the adrenals, trim them from excessive adherent fat, and weight them.

Autopsy report

Normal status:

  • Minimal: Adrenal glands are normal bilaterally.
  • Moderate length: Adrenal glands are ordinarily configured and with no definable focal changes on cut surfaces.
