Abstract

A guiding technique for testicular sperm extraction (TESE) was presented. A computerized non-invasive method to predict the exact location of spermatozoa within the testis was developed upon a three dimensional distribution of testicular blood vessels reconstructed from power Doppler ultrasound (PDUS) images. The results showed that motile spermatozoa were found in 9 positive regions, where the testicular vascularity index (TVI) values were at the range of 0.001 to 0.11.
