Department Allgemeine Innere Medizin, Kliniken Hirslanden Beau Site, Salem und Permanence, Bern, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Testicular incidentalomas are non-palpable, asymptomatic lesions, most frequently detected on ultrasound examinations. Each incidentaloma should undergo a standardized diagnostic workup to exclude malignancy and recognize other potentially significant non-malignant conditions that may first present with an incidental finding on scrotal ultrasound. This position statement of the World Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) summarizes the available evidence on management of testicular incidentalomas and describes efficient management strategies with particular reference to the role of ultrasound techniques.

Genome-wide association and genomic prediction for scrotal circumference in Hereford and Braford bulls.

Theriogenology 2021 Jul 18;172:268-280. Epub 2021 Jul 18.

Departamento de Zootecnia, Faculdade de Agronomia Eliseu Maciel, Universidade Federal de Pelotas, Pelotas, RS, Brazil; Embrapa Pecuária Sul, Bagé, RS, Brazil.

Scrotal circumference (SC) is widely used as a selection criterion for bulls in breeding programs, since it is easily assessed and correlated with several desirable reproductive traits. The objectives of this study were: to perform a genome-wide association study (GWAS) to identify genomic regions associated with SC adjusted for age (SCa) and for both age and weight (SCaw); to select Tag SNPs from GWAS to construct low-density panel for genomic prediction; and to compare the prediction accuracy of the SC through different methods for Braford and Hereford bulls from the same genetic breeding program. Data of SC from 18,172 bulls (30. Read More
