Physical examination is the most widely used method for detecting varicoceles but other techniques may be more sensitive. Color Doppler sonography has the theoretical advantage of allowing direct demonstration of reversed flow in the testicular veins. The frequency of detection of reversed flow by color Doppler ultrasound in a normal population is, however, unknown. We evaluated 34 asymptomatic young men with… CONTINUE READING
