What abnormality is seen in this ultrasound scan of a testis?

This is testicular microcalcification. Its significance is uncertain but it may be associated with carcinoma-in-situ and it should be followed up by regular (annual) ultrasound in men less than 50. It is seen in congenitally abnormal testes, in infertile men and following trauma or surgery but its significance in older men is not clear
