Overview

A scrotal radionuclide scintigraphy has a high specificity and sensitivity in distinguishing between testicular torsion and epididymoorchitis. In testicular torsion, there is decreased or absent uptake of radionuclide, while uptake is increased in cases of epididymoorchitis.[1]

Other Imaging Findings

Scrotal Radionuclide Scintigraphy

A scrotal radionuclide scintigraphy has a high specificity and sensitivity in distinguishing between testicular torsion and epididymoorchitis. In testicular torsion, there is decreased or absent uptake of radionuclide, while uptake is increased in cases of epididymoorchitis.[1]
