The present report describes 6 cases of adrenal venous sampling (AVS) in patients who underwent computed tomography (CT) during arteriography because cannulation of right adrenal veins was otherwise difficult. CT was performed during arteriography to obtain information on the location and direction of the right adrenal vein. Two right adrenal veins were visualized in 1 case. The right central adrenal vein was not visualized in 1 case owing to an injury from a previous unsuccessful AVS procedure, but the right renal capsular vein was well visualized. CT during arteriography could contribute to a high AVS success rate.
