[Testicular scanning in intrascrotal lesions].Hinyokika Kiyo. 1986 Sep; 32(9):1275-81.HK
Testicular scanning with technetium-99m sodium pertechnetate was performed on 152 patients with a variety of intrascrotal lesions. Scrotal images were obtained serially in the perfusion, tissue phase, illustrating the features of each phase in various clinical conditions. The relationship of scrotal imaging to the overall clinical presentation and evaluation of these patients is emphasized in testicular torsion of the testicular appendix, epididymitis, abscess, trauma, tumor, spermatocele, and varicocele. Technical problems of the scanning are also discussed.
