Question Best Initial Test for Cushing's Syndrome

What is the best initial test for cushings syndrome?
In MTB, it says the best initial test is 24-hr urine cortisol. But in KLN, it is the overnight dexamethasone suppression followed by the urine cortisol.

I'm confused. Can anyone help shed some light. Thanks.
