Scrotal and Testis Ultrasound
We will perform a detailed assessment of the testes and scrotal contents. This includes the assessment of the superficial tissues of the scrotum, the testes, epididymis (tube connected to the testis) and the spermatic cord.
Common examples for having this ultrasound scan are to investigate the causes of lumps, pain, and swellings of the scrotum for conditions such as scrotal hernias, epididymal cysts, hydroceles (fluid), varicoceles (varicose veins), unexplained swellings and testicular masses.
We will provide a Radiologist report within 24 hours.
The lower clothing and underwear will need to be lowered to the mid-thigh region in order to expose the scrotal area. Tissue will cover all but the affected area to be examined.
