Anchorage sonogram

Testicular Sonogram

A testicular (or scrotal) sonogram is an examination of the testicles and the surrounding tissues in your scrotum. Ultrasound is the primary imaging modality used to observe and diagnose abnormalities in the testicles and scrotum. Images are obtained of each teste, epididymis, spermatic cord, venous plexus and scrotal wall, as well as an assessment of blood flow. The procedure is safe and painless, lasting approximately 30 minutes.

Several Common Indications for the Exam:

  • Palpable lump in the teste or scrotum
  • Pain or swelling in your testicles
  • Find the location of an undescended testicle

No preparation is needed for this exam.
