Abstract:

The present study was conducted to establish normal ultrasonographic features of canine penis testis in 12 healthy male dogs, age ranging from 2 to 10 years. The echo texture of penis observed at pre scrotal and post scrotal in transverse and longitudinal scan was done in non-erected penis. The ultrasonogram at the level of glans of penis showing a strong, hyperechogenic linear structure of os penis and above it the corpus spongiosum visualized as a hypoechoic structure due to its acoustic shadow in longitudinal sonogram and hyperechoic round to ovoid shaped structure of os penis and round structure of urethra. The echogenicity of the os penis formed ‘V’ shaped structure and the urethra was located within a ‘V’ shaped groove on ventral aspect showing anechoic round structure. The sonoanatomical study revealed that the assessment of penis is easily performed and accurate for the clinical examination, helps to detection of small lesions or those which not accessible by palpation as well as to evaluate breeding soundness of dog.
