Abstract

Radiologists play a fundamental role in the evaluation of patients with testicular disease. Imaging can in fact provide highly effective information which responds to clinical queries regarding the presence of lesions, their intra-or extratesticular location and whether they are bilateral. In some cases imaging is even able to identify the nature of the lesions. The most appropriate techniques are ultrasonography (US) and magnetic resonance (MR). Plain film radiology and computed tomography (CT) may be used in rare cases in the search for gas or calcifications in the scrotal tissue.
