The purpose of this review is to describe the indications for and approach to imaging-guided ablation of the adrenal gland. Imaging-guided radiofrequency ablation of the adrenal glands is an effective procedure in the local control of primary or metastatic adrenal malignancy and is an alternative minimally invasive therapy for functioning adrenal tumors. Potential complications of hypertensive crises can be managed by preprocedure administration of α- and β-blockers in coordination with the anesthesiology department.
