Ultrasound evaluation of scrotum in pediatrics.
Urology. 1986 Jan; 27(1):1-9.U

Abstract

Scrotal abnormalities are difficult to assess using clinical criteria alone. Ultrasound provides an accurate means of demonstrating the scrotal contents so that appropriate therapy may be instituted. In a retrospective study, 119 ultrasound examinations of 96 patients (aged 4 days to 23 years) have been compared with the clinical diagnosis, surgical/pathologic findings, and other imaging modalities. The gamut of disease identified included congenital anomalies, neoplasm, trauma, torsion, varicocele, hydrocele, epididymo-orchitis, epididymal cyst/spermatocele, and post-radiation fibrosis. The ultrasound findings correlated well in 93/96 patients. In inconclusive cases, sequential imaging helps differentiate traumatic and inflammatory lesions from neoplastic processes.
