Abstract

Background: High resolution ultrasound (US) has revolutionized the evaluation of intrascrotal diseases. All the disease process may affect intrascrotal structure can be evaluated with ultrasonography. Objectives: To find out the types of scrotal pathology, to observe the clinico-pathological aspects of scrotal diseases. To find out the sensitivity & accuracy of Duplex Color Doppler ultrasound examination in the diagnosis of scrotal pathology. Materials and method: This study was carried out in the Department of Radiology & Imaging Dhaka Medical College, Dhaka with the active help of other relevant departments. Cases were collected from outpatient departments of DMCH from July 2004 to June 2005. Fiftytwo patients were selected who presented with different symptoms implying intrascrotal diseases. Results: Among 52 patients included in this study 10 patients presented with hydrocele of which primary and congenital hydrocele was the commonest. High resolution US and color flow imaging could not rule out neoplasm in one patient which ultimately proved to be a case of tuberculosis of testis. About the detection of total intrascrotal pathology color flow imaging have played a significant role with the accuracy 96.1%, sensitivity 97.8 %, specificity 80 %, positive predictive value 97.8 % and negative predictive value 80%, whereas the gray scale image had accuracy 80.7 %, sensitivity 84.4 %, specificity 57.1 %, positive predictive value 92.7 % and negative predictive value 36.3 %. Conclusion: Predictive accuracy, sensitivity & specificity of Color Doppler in diagnosing scrotal disease were found to be significantly greater than that of gray scale diagnosis. Therefore, the results of the present study suggest Duplex Color Doppler sonagraphy is a useful modality in diagnosing different intrascrotal pathology.
