A good clinical examination is required to locate the position of undescended testis. Imaging studies may not determine with certainty whether a testis is present or absent.  Ultrasound can help to locate the testis in inguinal area but not a good test for locating intraabdominal testis. MRI is a sensitive test to locate testis but not routinely recommended as is expensive, needs sedation for child and also does not change the course of management. The gold standard for locating the testis is diagnostic laparoscopy
