In 1316 ultrasonographic investigations of the urinary tract and male genitals carried out in 1983 through 1985 pathological changes in the scrotal organs were found in 133 cases. Seventy-five patients were operated upon, and this group served for an analysis of the agreement between preoperative and postoperative diagnoses which was 89.00/o. The results of these examinations and certain diag­nostic problems in these cases are discussed. The results, although encouraging, in­dicate, in the opinion of the authors, that scrotal ultrasonography is only one of many auxiliary investligations, and is not always easy for evaluation even by experienced Urologists.
