Sonography of Pediatric Scrotal Emergencies.

Paltiel, Harriet J. MD

Collapse Box


Summary: The clinical presentation of a boy with acute scrotal symptoms is frequently nonspecific and physical examination may be difficult. Gray-scale ultrasonography combined with color Doppler imaging provides a rapid and accurate imaging tool in the investigation of these patients. The author reviews the characteristic sonographic imaging features of the most common and important causes of acute scrotal symptoms in boys.
