Evaluation of noninvasive methods of predicting testicular weight and development in an inbred and outbred strain of laboratory mouse.

Abstract

Testicular weight is a valuable measure of gonadal development in laboratory mice, but is usually only obtainable postmortem. The objective was to assess the utility of antemortem, noninvasive methods of predicting testicular weight and volume in peripubertal mice. Body weight, scrotal width, and ultrasonographic testicular diameter measurements were… (More)
