    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system male; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: eLearning; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Transverse US images of the right testis show a well-circumscribed intra-testicular mass with alternating rings of hyper and hypo echogenicity and a slightly echogenic center. The surrounding testis is normal.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system male; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: eLearning; Special Focus: Cysts;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Testicular MRI
     

    Axial T1-weighted image shows two low signal intensity masses circumscribed by a peripheral low signal rim.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system male; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: eLearning; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Axial T2-weighted image shows two high signal intensity masses with multi-layered concentric low signal rings, surrounded by a peripheral low signal rim.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system male; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: eLearning; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Coronal T2-weighted image shows two high signal intensity masses with multi-layered concentric low signal rings, surrounded by a peripheral low signal rim.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system male; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: eLearning; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Axial gadolinium-enhanced T1-weighted image shows sharply defined low-signal-intensity masses without enhancement.
