Colour Doppler ultrasound of epididymitis in child:

This seven-year-old child had tenderness and pain in the right scrotum. Sonography of the scrotum was done to look for possibility of torsion of the testis. Ultrasound and colour Doppler study was done and revealed marked vascularity of the right head of epididymis. Both testis showed normal vascularity ruling out the possibility of torsion of testes. (We used the Philips HD 15 ultrasound system in the study). Usually, colour Doppler study of the scrotum in children below the age of 10 years can often be confusing with poor colour pickup. However, in this case the colour Doppler signals of the scrotal region was excellent.

Colour Doppler ultrasound images of the scrotum are shown below:
