ABSTRACT
Newer sonographic technique, tissue elastography has been developed as a qualitative and potentially quantitative adjunctive tool to provide additional information on tissue stiffness, aiming to further improve diagnostic confidence of benign versus malignant focal testicular lesions. The purpose of this review is to provide an overview of the elastography techniques in assessing focal testicular lesions and their typical appearance on tissue elastography.
