Testes or scrotal ultrasound is usually carried out when a patient notices a lump or feels pain in his testicles and/or Testes area. This is a non-invasive and painless procedure. Using a transducer lubricated with warm gel, the sonographer moves the transducer over the scrotum to obtain the necessary images. Both testes, epididymides are examined to characterize any palpable lumps or to identify inflammation in the case of epididymo-orchitis.
This is a very simple procedure and it does not require any special preparation on the part of the patient.
