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.
