Role of ultrasound in the assessment of male infertility.


The use of ultrasonography has become an important component in the evaluation and treatment of male reproductive tract disorders. From the use of color flow Doppler ultrasonography for the assessment of varicoceles to transrectal ultrasonography combined with seminal vesiculography for the evaluation of ejaculatory duct obstruction, ultrasonography has practical clinical applications. In this article, the authors review the indications and use of ultrasonography in the assessment and treatment of the infertile male. The recent advances in diagnostic transrectal ultrasonography for ejaculatory duct obstruction, in particular, are emphasized.
