Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To illustrate how spectral Doppler waveform analysis plays an adjunctive but very definite role in scrotal sonography.

METHODS:

The cases illustrate a variety of testicular disorders that were collected at a referral tertiary care center.

RESULTS:

Normal and a variety of pathologic conditions of the testes are discussed, along with their signature spectral waveforms.

CONCLUSIONS:

Analysis of the spectral waveform provides important additional information in various scrotal disorders with acute pain. Spectral waveform analysis is critical to diagnosing incomplete torsion when color and power Doppler examinations are indeterminate.
