WHAT IS PENILE ULTRASOUND DOPPLER?
Penile Doppler Ultrasound is used to evaluate the circulation in and put of the penis during erection as well as assess the structural tissue of the penis. Penile ultrasound can be used to evaluate many conditions affecting the penis, including erectile dysfunction (ED), plaques (such as those caused by Peyronie’s disease), fibrosis, lumps, and even cancer.
In a Doppler ultrasound, the sound waves bounce off circulating red blood cells. A change in pitch signals the movement of blood.
