    Abstract

    The data in this thesis help to improve our understanding of adrenal tumors with a focus on diagnostic strategies and patient management. Ongoing efforts to enhance the discrimination between clinically relevant adrenal tumors and those without clinical consequences are supported by the development of an alternative diagnostic strategy. In addition, the findings described in this thesis should further optimize perioperative management of patients with pheochromocytoma or sympathetic paraganglioma, and may help to pave the way for a more comprehensive assessment of hemodynamic instability.
