The impact of sonography on the management of extratesticular abnormalities of the scrotum.
The results of scrotal sonography performed in a recent one-year period (1987) were retrospectively reviewed to assess the role of sonography in the management of patients with extratesticular abnormalities. The study included 226 examinations performed in 204 men. In extratesticular abnormalities, scrotal sonography confirms the clinical impression of the referring physicians, monitors the progress of conservative treatment, and guides the surgical approach. Patients with sonographically classic cystic extratesticular abnormalities rarely come to surgery. Those with complicated cystic abnormalities are usually followed clinically but have a higher incidence of surgery. Those with solid-appearing echogenic abnormalities usually have surgical removal.
