CT and lymphography correlations in the evaluation of patients with testicular tumours



CT and lymphography correlations in the evaluation of patients with testicular tumours



Rontgen-Blatter; Zeitschrift für Rontgen-Technik und Medizinisch-Wissenschaftliche Photographie 33(6): 267-271



27 patients with testicular tumours were examined by lymphography and computerized tomography for evaluation of metastatic spread in the retroperitoneal lymphnodes. A good correlation of results was found in 23 patients. In 4 cases lymphography failed to show metastatic disease, which was easily recognized by CT. In account of the lymphatic spread pathways of testicular tumours leading mainly to the lymphnodes close to the kidney pedicle CT appears to be method of choice in the staging of these patients, as the lymphnodes in this area are often not demonstrated by lymphography. Computerized tomography allows the exact localisation and extension of neoplastic lymphnodes and at the same time a good evaluation of the surrounding organs.
