  • Objective determination of spermatogenesis has been accomplished by quantitative testicular biopsy, which, although laborious, has served as the standard for spermatogenic assessment. Aspiration deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) flow cytometry of the testis, however, has simplified this determination, and has correlated with indirect hormonal parameters of spermatogenesis and qualitative observations of the seminiferous epithelium. Nevertheless, this important modality has yet to be validated against… CONTINUE READING
