  2. ACTH: adrenocorticotropic hormone, COR: corisol, PAC: plasma aldosterone concentration, PRA: plasma rennin activity, DST: dexamethasone suppression test, Furo-upright: frosemide-upright test, Capt: Captopril loading test, HU: Hounsfield unit, NF: non-functional mass, SCS: subclinical Cushing's syndrome, PA: primary aldosteronism
