A 21-year-old male asked:

Does a normal ultrasound following epididymitis and scrotal trauma imply that the testicles are alive or could the normal ultrasound be false negative?

Normal: A normal ultrasound is very unlikely to be a false negative, especially if doppler was also used to evaluate the blood supply to the testicles.
