Özet

Definitive diagnosis of penile masses usually depends on clinical symptoms and patient history but in some challenging cases the help of radiologic diagnostic tools is required. Although ultrasound is an effective tool for detecting penile masses, unlike magnetic resonance imagining, it is not able to differentiate benign and malignant pathologies. Shear wave elastography (SWE) is a novel method, which has the ability to differentiate malignant and benign tissues by giving quantitative information about tissue elasticity. In this paper we present two cases with penile masses to demonstrate the potential use of SWE in the differential diagnosis of penile masses.
