Comparison of imaging and laparoscopy in diagnosis of non-palpable undescended testes.

Objective: To assess the accuracy of ultrasound and MRI in comparison with laparoscopy in the detection of non-palpable undescended testes.

Patients and Methods: 42 patients with non-palpable undescended testis were submitted to US, MRI and laparoscopy from October 2014 to October 2020 in the urology department of Al-Sader Medical City, Najaf. Laparoscopic findings were compared with US and MRI results.

Results: Sensitivity was 60%, 70% and 100% and specificity was 30%, 50% and 100% for US, MRI and laparoscopy, respectively.

Conclusion: Laparoscopy is more superior to US and MRI in the detection of non-palpable undescended testis.
