Scrotal Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging is safe and painless. Also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, Ultrasound is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body using high-frequency sound waves. Ultrasound imaging of the scrotum images a male’s testicles and surrounding tissues. This exam can help evaluate disorders of the testicles, epididymis (tubes immediately next to the testicles that collect sperm) and the scrotum.

How Should You Prepare for Scrotal Ultrasound?

Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to change into a gown. We may ask you to remove any clothing and jewelry in the areas where we’re examining. There are no medication or medical restrictions. You will be instructed on what you may eat or drink beforehand.


What to Expect During your Scrotal Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a painless, noninvasive test where you sit or lie comfortably on an exam table while a certified sonographer applies a warm water-based gel to the body-part being examined. The sonographer then uses a small hand-held device called a transducer, about the size of a computer mouse, to perform the exam, gently moving it back and forth over the area of interest until the desired images are captured. There is usually no discomfort during the exam. Once the test is complete, the sonographer will wipe off the water-based gel. Any remaining gel will dry to a powder. This gel will not stain or discolor your clothing. You will be free to leave the facility and resume normal activities as soon as you are ready after your test.
