Scrotal Ultrasounds with Footsteps To Fertility Centre

Scrotal ultrasound is an imaging test that looks at the scrotum. It is the flesh-covered sac that hangs between the legs at the base of the penis and contains the testicles.

The testicles are the male reproductive organs that produce sperm and the hormone testosterone. They are located in the scrotum, along with other small organs, blood vessels, and a small tube called the vas deferens.

At Footsteps To Fertility Centre, we are honored to have helped thousands of men with routine scrotal ultrasound which provides valuable information in the diagnostic evaluation of infertile men and substantially detecting more pathological conditions.

Whether you are here for screening, diagnostic or treatment imaging services, we are committed to providing a caring, comfortable environment and a positive, productive experience.

Confidential Tests to Eliminate all Doubt

Why are scrotal ultrasounds done?

Also known as testicular ultrasound, testicular sonogram, scrotal ultrasounds are done to:

  • Find an undescended testicle.

  • Check for fluid in the scrotum (hydrocele), fluid in the epididymis (spermatocele), blood in the scrotum (hematocele), distended scrotal vessels (varicocele) or pus in the scrotum (pyocele).

  • Guide a biopsy needle for a testicular biopsy. This may be done when testing for infertility.

  • Find or check for an infection or swelling of the testicles or epididymis.

  • Check a mass or pain in the testicles.

Personalized Care For Men

What are the benefits of scrotal ultrasound imaging?

Ultrasound of the scrotum is helpful for finding abnormalities such as masses in the scrotum or testicles, hydrocele, varicocele all that may affect sperm production. However, it does not always permit an exact diagnosis such as the exact type of tissue a mass is composed of, especially when the mass is solid.

  • Most ultrasound scanning is noninvasive (no needles or injections).
  • Occasionally, an ultrasound exam may be temporarily uncomfortable, but it should not be painful.
  • Ultrasound is widely available, easy-to-use and less expensive than other imaging methods.
  • Ultrasound imaging is extremely safe and does not use any ionizing radiation.
  • Ultrasound scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues that do not show up well on x-ray images.
  • Ultrasound provides real-time imaging, making it a good tool for guiding minimally invasive procedures such as needle biopsies and fluid aspiration.
