Anwar Al-Banna, Qaisar H Siraj, Uzma Afzal, Eiman Al-Awadi, Ahmad Ashour.


Peritoneal scintigraphy is a useful radionuclide technique in assessing the drainage function and for evaluating anatomical problems in patients on CAPD. Occasionally a patient on CAPD will present with scrotal swelling when radionuclide technique helps diagnose the cause of the swelling. We present a report of peritoneal scintigraphy in two patients on CAPD with scrotal swelling where the planar and SPECT-CT images demonstrated a connection between the peritoneal cavity and the peritesticular tunica vaginalis. This is the first report of a SPECT-CT peritoneal scintigram.
