A duplex ultrasound is most useful in evaluating possible penile arterial disorders. Further studies of the venous drainage system as well as arterial imaging are usually recommended if vascular reconstructive surgery is anticipated. When conducting duplex ultrasound on the penis, sound waves are reflected back when they contact relatively dense structures, such as fibrous tissue or blood vessel walls. These reflected sound waves are then converted into pictures of the internal structures being studied.
Erectile dysfunction is divided into two etiologic categories: psychogenic and organic. Most causes of erectile dysfunction were once considered to be psychogenic, but current evidence suggests that up to 80 percent of cases have an organic cause.
This informational course includes the doppler technique being performed on a patient and is designed to provide you foundational information for its use in thoroughly diagnosing male sexual dysfunction. This course will educate you on the science and details of duplex ultrasound and the clinical application to help your patients rejuvenate and repair damaged vascular tissue and treat Peyronie’s disease.
This course is intended for all practitioners.
