Objectives: Central venous sampling (CVS) with corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) stimulation is a crucial technique in evaluating adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)-dependent Cushing's syndrome (CS). We evaluated central venous sampling (CVS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in predicting the localization and lateralization of pituitary microadenomas.
