PURPOSE We investigated the feasibility of diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the early detection of ischemia in the testis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Circulation to the right testis in Wistar rats was occluded by surgical ligation of the right funicle. The left side was sham operated and served as a control. The diffusion and T2-weighted MRI images of the 2 testes was performed postoperatively by a 1.5 Tesla MRI unit using a knee coil. On apparent diffusion coefficient… CONTINUE READING
