Answer

Ultrasonographic findings suggestive of acute testicular torsion include the following [26] :

  • Absent or decreased blood flow in the affected testicle

  • Decreased flow velocity in the intratesticular arteries

  • Increased resistive indices in the intratesticular arteries

  • Hypervascularity with a low resistance flow pattern (after partial torsion-detorsion)
