Diagnostic ultrasound of scrotum

, : Diagnostic ultrasound of scrotum. Urology 27(1): 72-75

Ultrasound is a proved, safe diagnostic procedure. Its efficacy in the evaluation of 54 cases of scrotal pathology is reviewed. Ultrasound was 100 per cent accurate in the evaluation of hydroceles, hematoceles, and paratesticular masses, but less informative in testicular abscesses (80%) and epididymo-orchitis (77%).
