Imaging Disorders of the Male Pelvis
The two areas of the male reproductive tract most often imaged are the scrotum and the prostate. Disorders in these organs are generally seen in two distinct age groups: scrotal disorders, both inflammatory and neoplastic, affect younger men (aged 15–40 years), while prostatic disorders affect men older than 50 years of age. Ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the two most commonly used modalities to image these disorders.
