Utility of computed tomography in the localization of the undescended testis

J K LeeS S Sagel


Computed tomography (CT) was accurate in localizing the undescended testis in eight cryptorchid patients. In three patients the testis was in the lower abdomen, and in five it was in the inguinal canal. In one patient delineation of an unusually large intra-abdominal testis alerted the surgeon to its possible malignant transformation. The advantages and potential pitfalls of CT in preoperative localization are discussed.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
