Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Magnetic resonance imaging represents a valuable problem-solving tool in the investigation of scrotal diseases. The technique has a clinical role in cases of inconclusive ultrasonographic examinations and when tissue characterization is necessary. The evaluation of large masses is improved compared to ultrasonography. A variety of nonsurgical lesions are safely characterized. MR imaging can be used to provide information about testicular perfusion with a sensitivity rivaling that of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography.
