   New scan reliably detects primary aldosteronism, a common cause of hypertensionNew scan reliably detects primary aldosteronism, a common cause of hypertension
 
In a recent article, researchers performed a prospective within-patient clinical trial, Is Metomidate superior to AVS in predicting ouTComes from adrenalectomy in primary Hyperaldosteronism (MATCH) in the United Kingdom (UK) in primary aldosteronism (PA) patients. These patients suffered from high blood pressure caused by a steroid hormone, aldosterone.
