  • Figure 1
    Scrotal ultrasound 

    Scrotal ultrasound longitudinal axis (panoramic view) using a linear probe: shows a large cystic lesion adjacent to the right testis with internal echoes, suggestive of a spermatocele.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system male; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Calcifications / Calculi;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Scrotal ultrasound
     

    Scrotal ultrasound longitudinal axis using a linear probe: shows minimal loculated hydrocele in the right scrotum with multiple echogenic foci, suggestive of scrotoliths/scrotal pearls.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system male; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Calcifications / Calculi;

    Scrotal ultrasound longitudinal axis of the left scrotum using a linear probe: shows the left testis with multiple scrotal pearls (arrows) in the tunica vaginalis.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Calcifications / Calculi;

    Scrotal ultrasound longitudinal axis of the left scrotum using a linear probe: shows the left testis with multiple scrotal pearls (arrows) in the tunica vaginalis.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Calcifications / Calculi;

    Scrotal ultrasound longitudinal axis of the left scrotum using a linear probe: shows the left testis with multiple scrotal pearls (green arrow) in the tunica vaginalis.

  • Figure 3
    Scrotal ultrasound
     

    Scrotal ultrasound longitudinal axis using a linear probe: shows normal appearing bilateral epididymi.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Calcifications / Calculi;

    Scrotal ultrasound longitudinal axis using a linear probe: shows both testes having normal size, echotexture and vascularity.
