Hematospermia (HS) is often times an anxiety provoking
idiopathic self limiting condition. Potential
etiologies, diagnostic work up, imaging techniques and
appearance of associated pathologies will be discussed.
MRI plays an important role in diagnostic work up of men
with persistent hematospermia due to its superior soft
tissue contrast, multiplanar capabilities and ability to
resolve small caliber structures e.g. ejaculatory ducts,
vasa deferentia and internal architecture of prostate in
both young and older patients. Participants will gain an
appreciation for the wide variety of conditions
encountered in HS on MRI imaging.
