Answer

Abdominal ultrasonography helps in assessing the size of the kidneys and the patency of the urinary tract. It is particularly useful before chemotherapy in anticipation of, for example, prolonged excretion and excess toxicity. When symptoms are present, testicular ultrasonography aids in identifying additional sites of disease.
