Abstract

Acute nontraumatic testicular problems are common in children. Currently the most successful imaging modality for the demonstration of these abnormalities is ultrasound. The most important information gathered from the ultrasound study is whether or not the patient will need surgery. This is dependent on whether blood flow to the testicle is present or absent. This article reviews the most common causes of acute nontraumatic testicular conditions and presents a summary flow chart to help simplify imaging findings and correlate these to patient disposition.
