Modifications of echogenicity of the testis during acute torsion may be a predictive factor of organ damage?
AbstractIn the setting of symptoms of testicular torsion the absence of diastolic flow or color flow on Doppler ultrasound has traditionally prompted emergent scrotal exploration. This practice emanates from the difficulty on ultrasound of distinguishing salvageable testes from those that are not salvageable. We evaluated the changes of echogenicity in the course of testicular torsion of the testis to identify characteristics predictive of irreversible organ damage.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
