Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical importance of a unilateral striated pattern seen on high-resolution sonography of a testicle on the basis of follow-up imaging. CONCLUSION. In the absence of relevant clinical findings or an abnormal signal on color-flow or power Doppler sonography, a striated pattern of a testicle appears to have no clinical importance. It is presumed to represent fibrosis, and the patient most likely can be followed up clinically and sonographically rather than having to undergo surgical exploration.
