Radionuclide scrotal imaging: a useful diagnostic tool in patients with acute scrotal swelling?
Scand J Urol Nephrol Suppl. 1987; 104:119-22.SJ

Abstract

Fifty-four patients complaining of acute painful scrotal swelling were submitted to urgent radionuclide scrotal imaging. Clinical and surgical findings were compared with the results of radionuclide studies. Radionuclear scrotal imaging is an easy rapid none invasive investigation with high accuracy in inflammatory disease of the scrotal content. Two falsely negative examinations confirmed by surgical exploration, however, warn against relying on this method as a single test in the diagnosis of acute testicular torsion.
