The Monitoring of Preoperative External Detorsion with Diffusion-Weighted Imaging in a Patient with Acute Testicular Torsion

Figure 2

The right testicle shows high signal intensities on DWI (a). In the ADC map (b), the right testicle demonstrates lower ADC value than the left testicle. On DWI (c) and ADC map (d) obtained half an hour later following the preoperative external detorsion procedure, an isointense right testicle relative to the unaffected left testicle appears, which reflects the restoration of parenchymal blood flow.
