Testicular Ultrasound Guide

Scrotal ultrasound, testicular ultrasound, or the testicular sonogram is an imaging procedure that looks at the scrotum – the flesh-covered sac at the base of the penis and contains the testicles.

A scrotal ultrasound may be used to assess changes in size, examine a mass or lump appearing in one or both testicles, to identify sources of pain, and to show blood flow through the testicles.

The imaging can show abnormalities such as:

  • Varicoceles, varicose veins in the scrotum
  • Infection or abscess
  • Cysts or Tumors
  • Testicular torsion — twisting of the testicle

In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the various aspects of testicular ultrasound, from the reasons for conducting the procedure to its outcomes, and how Advanced Sonograms of Alaska can assist you in receiving the best possible care.
