In cases where the undescended testicle cannot be located by palpation, imaging techniques may be performed to locate it:

- To locate the intra-abdominal testicles, the best technique will be magnetic resonance imaging.
If it is not possible to know where they are using these techniques, it may be necessary to resort to laparoscopy.
