    By Hamed S. on 22. February 2017 for Introduction to Cushing’s Syndrome – Adrenal Gland

    One of the best talks I have come across describing the algorithm for diagnosis of cushings (superior to Kaplan and med study internal medicine lectures). It would have also been good to discuss the advantages/disadvantages of 24 hr urine collections vs low dose dexamethasone suppression test. Seriously good work though Dr Raj!
