SCHWANER C, Jaime et al. CANCER TESTICULAR: ESTUDIO DE EXTENSION CON TC DE CUERPO ENTERO . Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2005, vol.11, n.4, pp.193-200. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082005000400008.

Today testicular cancer has good treatment and long-term survival. Thorax, abdomen and pelvis computerized tomography especially helical technique is the most important tool to evaluate dissemination. We analyzed retrospectively 85 patients studied in the Hospital Regional de Concepción between 2002-2005 with testicular tumors whom had complete laboratory and TC helical evaluation and correlated local invasion detected in surgery with CT staging for estimate prognostic survival in agree with European consensus on diagnosis and treatment of germ cell cancer. The mean age at the time of diagnosis was 31 years (Range 19-57). Forty three were seminoma and 42 non seminomatous tumors. Staging demonstrated 43 stage I, 20 stage II and 22 stage III. Our prognostic groups were different to other series with 71% of patient's good prognostic, 24% intermediate and only 5% bad prognostic (non seminomatous tumors). We think that the new technology helical can obviate chest x-ray in the initial evaluation of these patients
