Abstract

The major application of nuclear imaging techniques to the genital tract is pertechnatate scintigraphy for evaluation of the acute hemiscrotum. Within a few years of the first descriptions of scrotal imaging, this technique achieved recognition as a valuable, even indispensable, emergency diagnostic procedure in this context; its validity has since been well confirmed in hundreds of reported cases. Because it is an established procedure with widely recognized applications, its discussion will occupy most of this article. Other nuclear procedures, less widely used either because they are investigative or applicable to smaller patient populations, will be more briefly described.
