Abstract

Careful evaluation of the epididymis with both gray-scale and color Doppler sonography should be part of every sonographic survey of the scrotum for blunt trauma. Traumatic epididymitis, which may be noted on color Doppler images, should not be confused with infectious epididymitis. Surgery is not necessary unless another injury requires it.
