The private testicular ultrasound will examine the testes and scrotum. The scrotum or testicular sack contains the testes and the epididymi. It is very common for pain or lumps to developed within the scrotal sac. In most cases these lumps are benign and ultrasound is being used to confirm what the lump is. Other possible abnormalities within the scrotal sac are an absent or undescended testicle, inflammation, testicular torsion (twisted testis), fluid collection, enlarged blood vessels (varicoceles) or a mass (lump or a tumour), infertility. Our clients choose our private ultrasound clinic for their scan, as in most cases after they have seen their GP who recommended an NHS scan, they don’t want to wait up to 6+ weeks to be given an inflexible appointment.

What should I expect during the testicular ultrasound?

Our sonographer will explain the procedure before the examination commences. You will be asked to lower your trousers and underwear to your knees and lie on the couch on your back. A small amount of gel will be applied to the scrotal sac and the transducer will be moved around the scrotum to obtain the images.

Who interprets the results of the testicular ultrasound scan and how do I get them?

Our Sonographer, a Health Care Professional specifically trained to perform and understand the ultrasound scan images, will do your ultrasound and provide you with an ultrasound report that you can take it your doctor.  Our sonographers will also discuss the results with you during and after your examination.

Our sonographers are advanced consultant practitioners with years of ultrasound scanning experience. They are fully qualified, registered with the HCPC, BMUS and SoR and work full/part time for the NHS and private clinics. On an average month, they perform more than 500 examinations and undertake regular CPD and other training activities to keep up with advances in ultrasound scanning technology. You can, therefore, rest assured that your health is in good hands.

 

What are the benefits and risks of the testicular ultrasound examination?

Benefits

  • Ultrasound scans are non-invasive.
  • An ultrasound exam should not be painful.
  • Ultrasound is widely available, easy-to-use and less expensive than other imaging modalities.
  • Ultrasound imaging is extremely safe and does not use any harmful ionizing radiation and this is why is the primary imaging modality in pregnancy.
  • Ultrasound scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues and blood vessels that do not show up well on x-rays.
  • Ultrasound scanning is dynamic and can evaluate body structures in real time.

Risks

  • There are no known harmful effects on humans related to ultrasound scans.

 

What are the limitations of Ultrasound scan Imaging?

It can sometimes be hard to fully visualise the internal anatomy of large patients as the sound has further to travel and therefore the returning echoes are weaker.

Ultrasound likes soft, solid organs to travel through, therefore is not possible to evaluate structures such as bowel and stomach. Bowel can also obscure organs when it can be found between the organ and the ultrasound probe.

About Ultrasound Scans

Ultrasound imaging is a medical diagnostic technique where sound waves are being used to image various parts of the body.
Other terms for ultrasound imaging that are being used are sonograms, US and sonography.
Ultrasound is widely used these days as it is painless and safe to adults, children and foetuses. There are no side effects such as the ones associated with ionising radiation produced by CT and plain x-rays.
During the ultrasound scan, the sonographer rests a small probe over the skin. This probe produces sound waves i.e. pulsations that travel through your skin and inside your body. Part of the sound waves are being reflected back to the transducer and the computer analyses the returning echoes and produces the image on the screen. Medical ultrasonography uses the same principle as the sonar that the navy uses to detect submarines.
Ultrasound is being used to image mostly solid soft organs such as liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries, muscles and blood vessels and babies in the womb. It has, however, limited value in organs such lungs, bone, stomach and bowel/colon.
Ultrasound images are black and white but colour Doppler is being used to evaluate organ blood flow and blood vessels and this is what the red and blue colours on the screen are.
