Background: Ultrasonography combined with color Doppler is the first modality for investigation of scrotal swellings. It is difficult for a clinician to differentiate a testicular pathology from an extratesticular one with presents as a scrotal swelling based on physical examination alone. Aims and Objectives: Early detection of pathology and establishing a surgical versus nonsurgical treatment for acute scrotal pain is important. Materials and Methods: This study included a total of 107 patients. Various scrotal pathologies were detected with ultrasound and Doppler with clinical correlation and found out that noninflammatory pathologies are more common than inflammatory pathologies. Conclusion: We concluded that high-resolution sonography and color Doppler can be used as a primary imaging modality in the diagnosis of scrotal pathologies.
