So yesterday I reviewed and posted Dr. Larry Mellick’s YouTube discussion of the diagnosis of testicular torsion. In addition I went ahead and excerpted Dr. Mellick’s article yesterday in my post, Dr. Mellick Discusses Testicular Torsion With EMRAP’s Dr. Rob Orman On YouTube Posted on November 6, 2018 by Tom Wade MD.
In Resources, after the two videos in this post, I have posted links to Dr. Mellick’s article as well as to two other recent resources on testicular torsion and testicular ultrasound.
Today, I’m embedding after having reviewed an outstanding two part video series on how to perform testicular ultrasound from ultrasoundpodcast.com.
