Özet

Background: Testicular microlithiasis (TML) is thought to cause microstructural changes in the parenchyma of the testis, but it is difficult to demonstrate this by ultrasonography. It may be possible to evaluate microstructural changes in the testis by Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) elastography, which measures tissue stiffness.
