Ultrasonogram Evaluation of Scrotal Pathologies with Elastography
Author(s): Anish N, Prabakaran M*
The present study aims to evaluate the role of ultrasonography in diagnosis and Characterization of the scrotal pathologies and to compare with ultrasound elastography. Different ultrasound machines and transducers in a phantom and found the difference in mean shear wave velocities between three machines to be statistically significant (p ≤ 0.002). This necessitates a caution while using absolute cut-off values for comparison of measurements obtained from different ultrasound machines and transducers. Outcome of evaluation is better when elastography is done along with the routine B-mode ultrasound in terms of characterization of the lesion and early diagnosis in case of testicular tumors.
