|Abstract:||INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Over the last decades a rise in the incidence of malignant testicular tumours has been observed. In the diagnostic work-up of scrotal masses, B-mode sonography is a routine tool. Further information on microperfusion can be gained by using contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS), which allows a more detailed assessment of microvessels compared to colour-coded Doppler sonography and thus permits a reliable distinction between vital and nonvital tissue. Recent elastography techniques provide measuring of shear-wave velocity operator-independently without application of manual pressure. Modern devices offer a colour-coded and numerical representation of tissue stiffness. The goal of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of the different techniques in the diagnostic work-up of unclear scrotal masses. [excerpt]|
