Scrotal scintigraphy has become a relatively uncommon examination in many nuclear medicine departments. However, scrotal perfusin is visualized during three-phase bone imaging of the pelvis and hips. The authors present a compilation of three cases of hip pain secondary to unsuspected scrotal pathology documented on routine three-phase bone scintigraphy, discussing this topic for the first time in the literature. A short review of the pathophysiology of referred hip pain, differential diagnosis, and imaging alternatives emphasize the unique contribution of nuclear imaging.
