The present study investigated the utility of testicular ultrasonography and shown specificity and sensitivity levels of different contralateral testis diameter in predicting monorchism. Of all diameters, a contralateral testis greater than 20 mm can predict monorchism with an accuracy of 80% sensitivity and 83% specificity.
Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the significance of contralateral testis size in predicting monorchism in pediatric patients with unilateral undescended testis.
The patients were grouped as having monorchism (M), nonpalpable intra-abdominal testis (NPIAT), and palpable undescended testis (PUDT).
