Abstract

The purpose of this review is to showcase the added value of scrotal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the workup of neoplastic and non-neoplastic entities. While ultrasound (US) remains the first-line imaging modality for evaluating scrotal pathology, MRI may add valuable information, particularly when US findings are equivocal. The inherent soft tissue resolution characteristics of MRI, as well as the ability to detect subtle enhancement and provide wider field-of-view imaging, can prove useful in evaluating inconclusive US findings. The added value of MR in these instances is critical as it may have a significant impact on patient management.
