Twelve cryptorchid patients had sonographic evaluation of the inguinal region prior to surgical orchiopexy. When the testis was within the inguinal canal, the gonad was localized preoperatively by sonography in eight of nine patients. One patient had an associated inguinal hernia in which loops of bowel concealed the gonad. There were no false positive cases. The authors were not able to show abdominal or pelvic maldescended testes.
