Value of scrotal scanning. Report of 62 cases.
Urology. 1985 Jan; 25(1):89-92.U

Abstract

A review of sixty-two technetium scrotal scans performed over a one-year period has led to a classification of pathologic states based on the degree of uptake of the radioactive isotope. Absent uptake, or a "cold" scan, is present only with testicular torsion, and rarely with avascular tumors. Increased uptake, or a "hot" scan, is most commonly seen with inflammatory conditions such as acute epididymitis and orchitis, and less commonly with tumor. "Mixed" scans can be associated with abscess, tumor with necrosis, trauma, and late torsion.
